Growing a Caring Church
Full Product Description
We may notice and feel compassion when we see somebody struggling in some way, but we also need to be properly equipped in order to offer the kind of wise and practical assistance that will start to guide them back towards wholeness of life.
Earthed in Jesus' command that as his disciples we are to love one another, this book shows how home groups can be places where people's pain and difficulties are noticed, and first steps taken to help.
Writing for both group leaders and members, Wendy Billington offers valuable insights coupled with down-to-earth advice, drawing on her pastoral work in the community and in the local church, as well as on her personal experiences of loss and cancer.
Wendy Billington co-ordinates the pastoral care programme at St Nicholas Church, Sevenoaks, which includes providing training in pastoral skills, listening to people's concern, bereavement care, marriage enrichment and supporting cancer sufferers and their families. She is a director of the Sevenoaks Christian Counselling Service.
Growing a Caring Church by Wendy Billington was published by BRF in May 2010 and is our 5709th best seller. The ISBN for Growing a Caring Church is 9781841017990.

Growing a Caring ChurchJackie Rowe, via The Good Book Stall
As I am involved in pastoral care and home group leading in my local church, I began this book with a great deal of enthusiasm. The author's special emphasis throughout the book is on givng pastoral care in the context of home groups. In her introduction Wendy writes 'This book is written with leaders in mind, and particularly leaders of home groups.' She goes on to write out of her own wide experience as a counsellor and carer in the local church. The book is full of practical suggestions and helpful guidance in such areas as listening, coping with bereavement and loss and responding to a crisis. For me reading it gave positive affirmation of the way we handle things in our own church, but it did also show me ways to adjust and improve our care. A practical, well written book which I can thoroughly recommend.
