We're so glad to have you here

Welcome to Community Chaplains​

Communities are built on connections. Yet these days, too many of us live lonely lives. At Community Chaplains, we help rebuild those connections by getting out into our local communities and meeting people in their place and time of need.

Why have Community Chaplains?

In a time of diminished community connections, the Community Chaplains scheme
has been set up in order to restore that sense of belonging and aid each individual on their journey towards more complete physical, emotional, and spiritual maturity.

Our chaplains are local people who want to foster caring relationships and support those within their communities. That support could take a different form for every person. It may be that a chaplain helps someone connect with services available to help them in specific ways, or that they simply provide a friendly ear.

Who we are

  • Community Chaplains are from your community, for your community.
  • Whatever challenges you are facing, whether it’s anxiety, grief, redundancy, relationship issues or loneliness, our chaplains can provide non-judgemental support.
  • This is an opportunity for community members with time to spare and compassion to share to give back to those around them.
  • All our chaplains are police checked and undergo training by our organisation.
  • Our people can be identified in the community by their Community Chaplains logo.
After I first heard about the Community Chaplains scheme, I was drawn to the idea. As a recent retiree whose children all live out of town, I have time and love to share. I spoke to my church’s minister, who connected me with the Community Chaplains leaders – and I have loved every moment since. I have been able to help people and offer spiritual guidance while building new relationships.
