Support Parish Nurses and churches in enhancing the well-being of people in the UK through holistic healthcare approaches.
See churches and Christian organizations across the UK receiving support to establish enduring, accredited Parish Nursing services that promote comprehensive health and well-being for their local communities.
Work of Parish Nurses Parish Nursing functions by supporting individuals and communities on their journey towards a holistic healthcare approach within the context of a local church of any denomination. In the UK, it is clear that the National Health Service cannot comprehensively meet the burgeoning demand for increasingly complex health care and there is a need for individuals and communities to reclaim responsibility for whole-person care.
Whole-person healthcare encompasses an individual’s complete well-being; their spiritual, physical, mental, and social dimensions of health. Grounded in the Biblical principle of ‘Shalom,’ we hold the belief that these facets of well-being are interconnected and frequently influence one another.
Every Parish Nurse is a registered nurse, selected or employed through a local church or Christian organisation. The majority of them maintain their roles within the NHS, although there are some who exclusively dedicate their time to Parish Nursing.
