What is Chaplaincy?

Chaplaincy is about providing a listening ear and building bridges of understanding and trust between work, faith, leisure and society. It is a person who interacts with people for their emotional and spiritual wellbeing. The service is open to all without discrimination and is confidential.  They have a special interest in your total wellbeing. They see you as a person made in the image and likeness of God, with a unique calling in life and a unique contribution to make. Chaplaincies are special places of welcome, therefore, they allow you to be totally yourself, to enjoy your unique personality and talents and to share these with others. They encourage you to explore, to play, to grow as whole persons with your dreams, your deeper desires, your ideals.
