Older members of the congregation are given particular attention in connection with their specific problems, and measures are taken to strengthen their faith. If as a result of the infirmity of age you are no longer able to attend divine service, the pastor responsible for looking after you will visit you regularly at home, or at your old people’s home / care home, and hold a short service that includes the celebration of the Holy Lord’s Supper. At some of these institutions, when the facilities are available, a full-scale divine service may also be performed. Other residents of the home are then warmly invited to attend.
Pastors of the New Apostolic Church are also concerned to give comfort, strength and peace to persons who are very sick or dying, and to be on hand to offer support to their family and friends.
