The Care Purse –‘Caring for one another in times of difficulty’
“And all the believers met together in one place and shared everything they had”. Acts 2:44
The Care Purse (replacing the Welfare Fund) is an element of the Pastoral Care Ministry and provides NBC access to a financial resource which can be used to meet cases of difficulty, normally within our church family.
The ‘purse’ is administered by the Pastoral Elder and Pastoral Worker and each situation will be handled sensitively and confidentially. As a church family it is important to foster ‘one another’ care within our fellowship, that means that sometimes we will be in a position to give and other times we may be on the receiving end – and that’s family life!
Special envelopes are available in the church foyer and further information on ways to support this practical ministry will be circulated periodically.
