We had a wonderful day of Response Pastor Training on Saturday 3rd of June at the Greyfriars Charteris Centre.  Volunteers came from all over Scotland to be equipped to respond to disasters or crises within the UK.

Response Pastors are a volunteers from around the country who are deployed to care, help and listen at times of crisis, tragedy, or disaster.  Response Pastors show Christian compassion and concern for those who might be traumatised, bereaved or in shock.

In times such as these, with rising incidences of terrorist attack, Response Pastors will be particularly invaluable.  It’s great to know that volunteers from Scotland have been trained to offer pastoral support and care in times of great need.
