Janet Harvey

Pastoral Assistant

Janet says “People are my passion!” She enjoyed being an Infant school teacher for many years, before training to be a Pastoral Assistant.

As a PA attached to the 6.30pm Service, she loves to get alongside the congregation, following up on those who may be bereaved, ill, or going through difficult times- listening, caring and empathising – helping them to feel that they are surrounded by God’s love. 

Across the church, she also supports those with long term illness and takes Holy Communion to the elderly and housebound. Janet jointly runs Nexus, a group for women of all ages – who go to Busbridge&Hambledon church, or who live in the surrounding area. She also co-ordinates Welcomers for the 6.30pm Service.
