Do chaplains have an increasingly important part to play in Christian outreach as church attendance declines? A new report suggests so. You can read about it here, and buy or download the actual report itself here.
Yesterday, the annual Prisons Week began. It aims to help Christians remember and support ministry and mission in British prisons. Did you know how much is done by church representatives? Are you also aware of the ministry of organisations such as Prison Fellowship?
And if you want a good cause to support this coming Christmas, you could do a lot worse than support Prison Fellowship’s Angel Tree project. It enables the children of prisoners to receive Christmas gifts from their incarcerated parents.
Chaplains are official representatives of the church who bear God’s love in all sorts of areas of life outside the church. Schools, hospitals, shopping centres, prisons, football clubs, the armed services and many more you’ve never thought about.
Chaplaincy isn’t just for ordained ministers, either. Regular, committed church members can be chaplains, too.
Read and download the Chaplaincy Everywhere report, which also contains reference to an accessible training course.
