Help, support and guidance

Whatever problems you may be experiencing, we are here to support you. Sometimes just talking with someone may help. All meetings with our pastors or diaconal workers are strictly confidential.

We respect each person's religious convictions and worldview on the basis of the freedom of belief. You do not need to be a member of the Church to have an appointment with one of our pastors or diaconal workers.
