Pastoral Care

Helping others

Pastoral care happens naturally when individuals in our community are prompted to care and support one another – but also intentionally through our Pastoral Care Team. Offering assistance to those in need or crisis, pastoral care can cover a broad range of care/support including, but not limited to, hospital or home visitation, befriending, meals and practical assistance at various times eg, pregnancy or illness.

It also reaches out to those within the community who require help through a range of different support programs or assistance to find suitable options to solve problems.


Meet Wini

Wini is our Minister for Pastoral Care. Her role is to lead a team that actively cares for people spiritually, emotionally and physically within Door of Hope Christian Church and in the broader community. From being a listening ear to providing food during tough times, the Pastoral Care team is here to be the hands and feet of Jesus. We love people because God loves people.

Wini is originally from Malaysia and has a great passion for food. (Eating it, not preparing it!)

"I dream of a church community famous for our love for people, where we seek to welcome each other, listen to one another and love everyone so well.”


Meet Jo

My role here at Door of Hope is that of a Chaplain. I work with the pastoral care team to provide support to the Door of Hope community and the broader Launceston community through programs we run here such as MadWheels and emergency food assistance.

"I love being able to assist people in the Launceston community who may need help, either directly through food hampers or through referrals to other Door of Hope services or external agencies, in order to help connect them onto the pathway to find the service they require."
