What do you think of chaplaincy?
Workplace Chaplaincy Derbyshire have started a new chaplaincy service to Sports Direct HQ and Distribution centre in Shirebrook.
Revd Karen Bradley, a new Church of England Vicar, wanted to find a way to serve those who worked at Sports Direct. Some thought the church should protest against the employer. Others wanted a different way of engaging.
Ecumenical colleagues decided to try to set up a space for Sports Direct staff to speak and be heard, and managers at Sports Direct welcomed the proposal. The chaplaincy hopes to grow with more volunteers and time.
The chaplains provide a listening and support service, and also provide opportunities for prayer and reflection. Following the London terrorist attacks they set up a prayer tree, to which the staff attached ribbons on which they had written prayers.
Workplace Chaplaincy Team Leaders from across the UK are meeting up on 26 June to learn from each others growth, and develop training programmes for new voluntary workplace chaplains. How do we share the good news of Workplace Chaplaincy with our communities and churches? New teams of chaplains continue to spring up across the country, and there is considerable media interest in chaplaincy as an exciting form of church life.
A new combined chaplaincy and listening service for businesses across the South Yorkshire region has been launched.
South Yorkshire Chaplaincy and Listening Services, will build on the existing services of the Sheffield Sports Chaplaincy and Sheffield Listening Services, led by Revd Baz and Linda Gascoyne. It will offer support to everyone in the workplace, irrespective of their faith.
The new service has been conceived by Sheffield Forgemasters’ former director, Peter Birtles and current Forgemasters’chairman, Tony Pedder. It will also initially incorporate the chaplaincy services for South Yorkshire Fire & Rescue and a listening service started at Greystones Medical Centre.
The Chaplaincy and Listening Service will fill a gap created by the demise of the South Yorkshire Workplace Chaplaincy last year. Chairman Tony Pedder said: “The South Yorkshire Workplace Chaplaincy has been a strong feature of life in the Sheffield steelworks during my time at Sheffield Forgemasters and indeed in my previous roles at British Steel and Corus. Its demise was a loss at a time when the industry continues to face an uncertain future. Hence, I view its replacement by a new service as a very welcome development.”
