Commissioning Service for Parish Nurse Ruth - Sunday 18th July 3pm - All Saints Parish Church.
Ruth joined the team in November 2020 but COVID restrictions led to a delay in her commissioning service. We are pleased to announce this will now take place at All Saints Parish Church, Croxley Green at 3pm on Sunday 18th July 2021 - ALL WELCOME (social distancing will be observed in the church).
May 2021 - Fully accredited with PNMUK
Churches in Croxley Green are partnering with Parish Nursing Ministries UK in an addredited service offering whole-person health care in this community. See our certificate here!
November 2020 - We have a second Parish Nurse!!
Parish Nurse Appointment
The Trustees are delighted to announce that we have been successful in obtaining additional funding which had enabled us to appoint a second Parish Nurse to work 1 day a week. Her name is Ruth Owunsu Ansah and she is a qualified and experienced Mental Health Nurse. She will begin working with us early in November after she had completed the Parish Nurse Training Course. With the impact of Covid 19 on people’s mental health and wellbeing we are confident that Ruth will have a huge impact on supporting local people through these difficult and trying times.
We are working on an induction programme which needs to be done within the
constraints of the current Government restrictions. We will also have a commissioning service for Ruth at a later date, we will let you know when this has been finalised.

Staff and Volunteers
Initially we plan to employ one or more Parish Nurses for a limited number of hours a week. They will be supported by additional volunteer support staff, who will be recruited from the local churches. As the project develops, we hope to provide additional hours of paid Parish Nursing time.
The Parish Nurse will be a fully accredited nurse registered with the Nursing and Midwifery Council. He or she will receive special additional training from Parish Nursing Ministries UK before commencing work and will receive regular update training.
Day to day support will be provided by a line-manager (one of the Trustees).
Statement of Faith
Working together, the churches in Croxley Green acknowledge and promote the truth that God, Father, Son and Holy Spirit is one God and that the Bible is the inspired word of God. We are committed in obedience to God's will to seek a deepening of our communion with Christ and with one another in the Church, which is his body, and to fulfil our mission to proclaim the Gospel by common witness and service in the world, to the glory of one God, Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
