What you may not know about Pastoral care
It is vital to get specialist advice to ensure that you are fully protected for the spiritual and emotional advice you provide. Whilst liability insurance can be purchased through numerous suppliers, some insurance policies will not extend to include pastoral care.
Pastoral care would include befriending, encouraging, listening and supporting both the church congregation and members of the public. It is used to help individuals through any season in their lives but should not be confused with counselling.
