Listen-in (Pastoral Support)

Run by the Christ Church Pastoral Team, we provide a listening and counselling service. It is an opportunity for you to talk to someone about the things that are troubling you. Listening to you, together we can help you to explore real life issues in a safe environment.

Team members are Christians who have had training in listening and counselling skills. Some are accredited with the Association of Christian Counsellors. As a team we adhere to the ACC ‘Code of Ethics’. Though we are a Christian organisation, this service is open to everyone whether believers or not. We will respect you point of view.

Is Listen-in confidential?

Anything you discuss will be considered to be private and confidential within the meaning set out in out ‘Confidentiality Statement’, a copy of which will be given to you on your first attendance. This is not a promise of ‘absolute secrecy’ in every circumstance. Very rarely, situations (e.g. Child Protection) do arise in which information may have to be disclosed. Whenever possible the team member will discuss this with you.

Where does Listen-in take place?

Usually you are seen in the Pastoral Room on the ground floor of the Key Centre, which is found behind Christ Church.
