Lynne Buckley - Pastoral Assistant

As Pastoral Assistant at Holy Trinity Lamorbey, I have undertaken various different activities over the years, but all based on supporting and teaching individuals or groups as part of the ministry team.  Currently, in addition to duties as a Senior Server and Intercessor on Sundays, I do some visits including Home Communion, have assisted in Preparation for Confirmation and gave the talk at the Christingle Service.  I also liaise between the Uniformed Organisations and the Church with regular meetings and pastoral support, prayer and encouragement as appropriate.  I am on the PCC and serve as the link person between our Parish and Rochester Cathedral; this was a post which I was given as I am a member of the Rochester Cathedral Voluntary Choir singing occasionally on Saturdays and Sundays and Visitor’s Chaplain once per month.  In addition to my ministry at Holy Trinity and the Cathedral, and some work in Spiritual Accompaniment for Rochester and Canterbury Diocese, I am employed as the Parish Worker at St John’s Church Blackheath with a commitment to worshipping there on Sundays at the morning or the evening service in addition to working there during the week.  I am married to Mike, also a server at Holy Trinity, and our married daughter, Lizzie Brett is in the choir and a leader of our Sunday School “The Ark”.

Anna Staple - Pastoral Assistant \

Anna writes, 'Having been confirmed in 1979 and married to Paul in 1987, the next biggest event in my life was being authorised as a pastoral assistant.  During the two years of training, God took me apart, put me back together again and he made a really good job of leaving a lot of the bad bits out and using new parts.  My cup is not half full or empty, it is actually overflowing with the love and grace of God.'
