What is parish nursing?

Parish Nursing seeks to provide whole person health care through a local church community.

Based on Christ’s teaching and ministry as demonstrated in the parable of the Good Samaritan. Parish nurses provide support for the physical, mental, social and spiritual health of individuals and aim to improve the lives of people in the UK by ministering health and wholeness.

Parish nurses work from their churches offering individuals and communities, personal health advice, advocacy support, health education, support groups, trained and helping people to integrate their faith and their health. All nurses are regulated by the Nursing and Midwifery council and work under its code of practice


Jan Zriel – our Parish nurse currently runs drop in clinics out of Holy Trinity and at the Bridge cafe down the street. She also does home visits to support people during illness/operation recovery.

Support from a Parish nurse is available to people of all ages and backgrounds.
