P 147 Nursing and the Mission of the Church (2016)


Most churches see healing ministry as an important aspect of the gospel, but few recognize the potential for making health care provision a key part of their missional activities.

Parish nursing offers a means for local churches to serve their communities through the work of a registered nursing professional. It also provides the church with a bridge into the lives of those who need the healing that Christ can bring, helping to bring the fullness of life to many more people.
