WHEN YOU NEED SUPPORT
West Highland is a warm, loving, nurturing community. People are cherished and experience care through the love of Christ. We recognize that life has challenges and people experience times when extra support and encouragement are needed. Our Care Ministry takes people's needs seriously in expressing compassion and offering help. By seeking to bear the burdens of others, we desire to see healing and hope which we know that Christ can provide.
Facing the challenge of pain, confusion and discouragement? Need someone alongside you in the journey to listen, help you to understand and be your friend? Stephen Ministers are trained and trustworthy individuals who care by listening, supporting, and praying for you in the tough seasons of life.

Prayer counseling is a ministry of prayer, in the power of the Holy Spirit through listening prayer to bring emotional healing and transformation to the whole person. By helping people deal with emotional strongholds such as unforgiveness, sexual issues, trauma, rejection or anger, the power of Christ and His truth is brought to bear on the root of their emotions and problematic behaviours. For more information on prayer counseling, view our brochure.
