Following the Tasmanian bushfires of 2013, the Tasmanian Council of Churches (TCC) has formalised the TCC Emergencies Ministry.
The TCC Emergencies Ministry seeks to provide compassionate care in times of crisis through the provision of emotional spiritual care, personal support, psychological first aid, and contribute to outreach in the event of a disaster or emergency.
The TCC Emergencies Ministry invites people who are interested in becoming trained and accredited volunteers to participate in this year’s first training session to be held in Hobart on March 25 & 26.
Further information can be obtained from Paul Hueston on 6222 8111, or by downloading a TCC information sheet and training registration form.
The Tasmanian Council of Churches is the primary agency whose sole purpose is to deliver pastoral care in the time of crisis.
