The three plagues of loneliness, helplessness, and boredom account for the bulk of suffering among our elders. As a befriender, you can provide social and psycho-emotional support to help them age well.


To this end, the PSW Volunteer Committee would like to invite all who want to learn to connect better with the elderly to join us in this Befrienders’Training course.


This course will prepare participants to provide pastoral care to the elderly and sick, the mentally ill and those who are dying.

During the four-lesson course, our guest instructors, Rev Foo Chee Meng and Rev King Chiew Kwang, will be sharing more about:


• Role of Befrienders

• Care to Listen

• Pastoral Care to the Mentally Ill

• Pastoral Care to the Dying


Upon completion of the training programme, hands-on practicum training can be arranged. The course and hands-on practicum will prepare you for your future volunteer role as a befriender at the upcoming SJSM Village.


The training is open to 50 participants on a first-come-first served basis.
