Shepherd’s Care Kensington Campus is the largest of our communities with over 600 residents calling it home. A 17-acre campus in the Kensington neighbourhood in northwest Edmonton, this Campus is known for it’s friendly, Christian environment. Developed around a spacious outdoor courtyard, residents experience a wheelchair accessible park with a barbeque area, walking paths and miniature horses from spring to fall.
There are many ways to socialize and be involved through resident formed social groups, auxiliaries and clubs or Campus-run programming. We also provide intergenerational programming through our Adopt a School program, contributing to a young, vibrant atmosphere for the whole campus.
The Pastoral Care and Chaplaincy Department plays an integral role in extending Christian care and support to our residents and their families.
Our Pastoral Care and Chaplaincy Department offers a variety of services, including:
- Pastoral care visits
- Prayer support
- Weekly services, Bible studies, hymn sings and communion services
- Crisis and grief counselling and support
- Quarterly memorial services
- Funeral services or ceremonies
- Volunteer opportunities
At some of our campuses, services are also put on by other Christian denominations during the week.
As is foundational with Shepherd’s Care, the Pastoral Care and Chaplaincy Department strives to do everything with excellence. Building relationships is fundamental to our Pastors’ and Chaplains’ role, and we do so throughout our local communities, including community churches.
