Why Chaplaincy?

Our new Autumn addition of WorkPlace People, our Workplace Chaplains give inspiring stories about their calling to the Chaplaincy role, such as:

“… to help people know that they matter to God”

“.. it give me life.. the Kingdom of God is all around us and waiting to be discovered”

“Chaplaincy can bridge gaps that appear insurmountable”

Local Church provides New Workplace Chaplaincy to Sports Direct

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.

UK Team Leaders Meet-Up

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.
