CWR’s brand new six-week series, Paraclesis: Journeying Together, encourages people to come alongside people who are struggling with life’s challenges. It offers the Church a fresh perspective on pastoral care and journeying together – the way that God journeys alongside us.

Have you ever faced hard times? A broken relationship? Job loss? Illness? Bereavement? Do you ever feel alone in your struggles?

Have you ever seen somebody struggling and thought ‘I understand how they feel, but I’m not sure how to help’?

Is your hope for the Church to be a place where people reach beyond the church walls to care for others?

Watch Trevor J. Partridge (pastor, developer of Paraclesis and co-founder of CWR) as he describes the heart, inspiration and importance behind this fresh new pastoral initiative.

Meet Trevor in person, explore the heart behind Paraclesis and learn how to empower your church to care with a free day at Waverley Abbey House.

How to start your journey

To help introduce Paraclesis: Journeying Together to your leadership team and church, we have compiled a free Introduction Pack, which you will receive once you sign up.

The Introduction Pack includes an Introductory Booklet containing samples of a sermon outline and a small group study, and extracts from the Daily Guide workbook and the companion book Love With Skin On. A DVD is also included with explanatory videos, perfect for introducing Paraclesis: Journeying Together to your church leadership team. By signing up, you will have immediate access online to all of these resources and more.
