It’s for communities around any Christian church and since most people have an interest in staying as healthy as possible, its a great way of reaching out in mission.
There are now 11 churches in Scotland that have a Parish nurse on their ministry team. It can be a voluntary or paid position, for one or more days a week. We now have a step by step process to enable more churches to explore the idea and if they wish, move on to setting up a Parish nursing service. The good news is that not only can churches apply for Cinnamon network start up funding of up to £2000, but that it can be matched by mission funding from the Baptist Union of Scotland.
