Associate Chaplains Programme
Faith at Work in Worcestershire aims to help congregations develop a vision for ministry with those at work locally through recruiting, placing and supporting Associate Chaplains. Wherever possible we encourage congregations to work together ecumenically.
Associate Chaplains may be ordained or lay people. They should be good listeners, able to keep confidences and available on a regular basis for two or three hours. They should be people who feel called to this ministry and who would be endorsed and supported by their priest/minister and the congregation of which they are a part.
Faith at Work in Worcestershire will work with churches to
- identify opportunities for workplace ministry
- discern suitable candidates to be Associate Chaplains
- negotiate, where appropriate, contact with local workplaces and set up chaplaincy.
If you or your church would like to know more about the Associate Chaplains Programme please contact us.
