We report with sadness the death of Doris Kent,
who has served Church and Centre loyally for many years.
A thanksgiving service will be held at St Martin's at 3.30 pm on Friday August 31.
Pastoral Care at St. Martin's Church and Centre
Life sometimes delivers severe blows and problems that are just too much to cope with on your own.
The Church and Christian Centre are here to support you and the community of Dorking both pastorally and spiritually.
If you need somebody to talk to in complete confidence, for whatever reason, we are here to help.
The Church Pastoral team has three trained and authorised Pastoral Assistants and two Methodist Pastoral Visitors,
all of whom are experienced and can offer understanding and prayerful support.
The Christian Centre offers a drop-in Listening Service on Monday mornings in the Centre Café (10:30 ? 12:00).
The Chaplain is usually available on Monday mornings plus variable other weekday mornings,
but you may prefer to make an appointment to see her via the Centre Managers.
One of our Monday morning Listeners is also a trained Counsellor (UPCA registered) and she can offer private appointments on request for counselling.
