Showing Christ through Pastoral Care   

Pastoral Care aims to share God’s love with each and everyone of our Church Family members and  is expressed and experienced through, personal visits,  phone contacts,  emailing, sharing over coffee or a meal, the provision of physical assistance and prayer throughout the week for and by each other.  

This takes place both with our Pastor and within the various ongoing small groups.

Pastor Ed and the Elders at IBCB want to make sure that those who have special needs or are going through particularly difficult times are receiving all appropriate assistance.  We encourage you to turn to Pastor Ed or one of the Elders to provide the support you seek.  Pastor Ed can be contacted directly here or an if you would like an Elder to contact you just write to
