PASTORAL CARE & SUPPORT

We are here for you.

Do you need help or support? Whatever challenges you are facing, we are here to support, pray and encourage.

At ICC, we have a dedicated pastoral team working together to cover all aspects of our congregation’s various needs. These include hospitalisation, bereavement, counselling, prayer support and much more. 

Our mission is to be an expression of our Saviour’s great love, and to set the stage for the full manifestation of His finished work in each and every one of these precious lives!


We strongly encourage every member to be part of a connect group because this is where pastoral care begins. 

We provide the following services.

This course runs over 7 sessions (which includes an information night and graduation dinner) and aims to empower couples to experience maximum enjoyment and commitment in their relationship. (TBC)
