Life is difficult. It can be filled with sadness, loss, grief, physical challenge, and emotional illness. The heart of Jesus broke for those around him. He wept real tears in response to the sufferings of others. But Jesus also embodied hope. We do not have to endure our hardships in isolation or without end.
Hope is often best represented through the tangible presence of other people who understand, who will walk the journey with us, who will be at our side, and who can speak a word of clarity and calm in the midst of a turbulent time.
Here at Our Saviour’s we offer care and support through:
