Work Place Chaplains Commissioning Service at Pershore Baptist Church on 20th January 2019
Each year Churches Together in Pershore which is an ecumenical grouping of Pershore Abbey, Pershore Baptist Church, Pershore Roman Catholic Church and Pershore Community Church come together for their Annual Service of Christian Unity.
This group of churches of all denominations have formed a team of work place chaplains to serve the town centre of Pershore, including the various shops and the market, as well as other central businesses. The chaplains will regularly visit these premises to offer support, encouragement and to be there for those who wish to have a confidential ear to listen to their concerns, which could be personal, family or work related. The team have completed full training and undertake their chaplaincy under the guidance of the charity, Faith at Work in Worcestershire. The service saw the commissioning of the Pershore Team to fulfil their role for their local community.
Prayers were said for the new Team as they serve the welfare of those working in the many businesses in Pershore town centre.
