This chapter offers a broad perspective of the pastoral role of Christians in spiritual care, while briefly outlining types of religious care that may be needed by different denominations within Christianity. At the same time the core belief of Christianity and differences between denominations are acknowledged. Concepts of belonging, of separation and of friendship are explored in the context of providing pastoral care to, by and with older people in a multifaith and multicultural society.
