Counselling training

Training to be a counsellor takes time (on average three to four years) and comprises the following core components:

two men talking
Pastoral care training

Christian pastoral care is ultimately concerned with developing quality relationships, enabling one another to recognise, follow and become more like Jesus. It is a commitment to love one another because we ourselves are first loved by God, and embraces a wide range of activity in support of one another, in and beyond the church.
