This support group focusses on relationship breakdowns associated with abuse and addiction. The group supports people with friends or family members living in abusive relationships or living with an addiction problem. The group meets in the vestry and is chaired by Rev Helen.

Anglicare Counsellors

The Anglicare counsellors are part of the Diocesan group of Anglicare counsellors. We have been trained to do family, relationship, marital and trauma counselling, and receive on-going supervision and training to enable us to be more effective. We offer pre-marital preparation. Our ministry is to those in need in our own congregation (and others in the diocese), as well as to the wider community including those who are 'not religious' and those of other faiths.

For more information, download the Anglicare Brochure (PDF) here.

If you would like to speak to an Anglicare Counsellor, you can contact the church office and we will refer to you an appropriate counsellor. Or contact Sue Waldron (Anglicare Counsellor Coordinator) directly on 082 331 1608.
