Ministerial Counselling Service - MCS

There are times when a minister or members of the ministerial family come under particular stress. It is not always appropriate to seek support from a colleague or a senior person in the church. To that purpose MCS has been set up to provide confidential access to independent help. It is available free of charge to all ministerial employees of the Adventist Church in the UK and Ireland.
