Pastoral Care

Ministering through a biblically sound sermon is unquestionably essential. Ministering through a personal touch, is equally valuable for members of Timothy Eaton Memorial Church who are looking to pray with someone during a time of crisis, struggling with difficulty or just to be present in a time of pain.


The Rev. Dr. Jean Hunnisett, Minister of Pastoral Care, is a caretaker of God’s flock and is respectful of the plethora of perspectives held by our members irrespective of age, disability, sex, sexual orientation or ethnicity. Her responsibility extends beyond Sunday Services. She provides theological counseling, hospital visits to the sick and injured and is an adherent member of the congregation through phone calls, lunch meetings, and other social engagements. 
The Rev. Dr. Jean Hunnisett, is formally trained to provide a professional approach and leads this ministry with a focus on guidance, reconciliation, empowerment and healing.

Please see the following programs offered under The Rev. Dr. Jean Hunnisett’s care and feel free to contact her directly if you are looking for further information or would like to join.

New Beginnings Grief Group

Healing is a natural process enabling us to recover from emotional wounds. Progression should not be rushed, as it varies for each person, so be gentle and patient and allow for thoughts and emotions to come and pass. It is important to not feel guilty and deal with the pain of loss as it’s a necessary part of God’s path to healing. No matter how deep the pain, God can help you find comfort and pray He will bring healing. Read more.
