Welcome to Paraclesis
CWR’s six-week series Paraclesis: Journeying Together, encourages people to come alongside people at a grass roots level, offering the Church a new perspective on journeying together – the way that God journeys alongside us.
What does Paraclesis mean and why is it important?
Paraclesis is inspired by, and built around, the Greek work ‘Paraklesis’ which translates as ‘one who comes alongside’.
Many people face life challenges such as stress, job loss, illness or bereavement. Paraclesis: Journeying Together enables every person to take their own experiences and turn them into a gift of support and care for other people around them.
Scripture shows that it is God’s heart that we should love and come alongside one another.
By adopting this local church-based initiative in your church, you can respond to those in your congregation and community who are thinking, ‘Who cares?’ with the answer, ‘My church cares’.
