Pastoral Care

Pastoral Care is the care of individual members of our church family. We believe that caring for one another is both a joy and a shared responsibility.

Rev. Don Parsons is our Minister of Pastoral Care. Don can be contacted through the church office 416 481-1141 ext. 351 or by email Don regularly meets with individuals in their home, hospital room, or for lunch or a chat over coffee.

The Pastoral Care Team coordinates the many ways we offer support and nurture one another within our church community.

Each person in the ESG family is contacted twice a year by email, phone call or visit to check in on how they are doing.

We’re here for you.

If you need a listening ear, or are struggling during this difficult time, let us know. A dedicated, confidential email address (monitored year round), is available for feedback and for bringing any pastoral care concerns to our attention at any time.

As well, trained pastoral care visitors are matched with seniors confined to their home or who live in a care facility. They keep in touch through a monthly visit or telephone call.


“How blessed we are at ESG to have our Pastoral Care Team. To my recent serious medical problems they brought listening ears, caring hearts, muffins and hugs. What a healing ministry! “
