Workplace Chaplains


Workplace chaplains visit people at work, in a great range of industries and workplaces. Chaplains are motivated by their faith in God who cares and wills all things be transformed and renewed by His love and life. By this simple ministry of presence chaplains seek to promote work practices which are fair, equitable, sustainable and give dignity to all. A chaplain questions, celebrates, encourages and cares for all they meet, whether or not they are people of faith.

Most workplace chaplains are volunteers who give a few hours a week, visiting a number of local workplaces regularly. Chaplains usually work in local teams, which are invariably ecumenical, with chaplains drawn from a range of churches.
