The chaplains are members of staff employed by the Trust to care for the pastoral and spiritual needs of the whole hospital community. Pastoral and spiritual care is for everyone: for people of all religions and none. You do not have to follow a particular faith; we will respond to everyone who asks to see us and will respect wherever you are coming from.
Coming into hospital can be an anxious time. Chaplains are available to meet with, to be with, to listen or to talk things through with patients and their families. We also provide the opportunity for individual prayer and communion for patients on the ward or for representatives of other faith communities to visit as appropriate.
The chaplaincy team consists of part-time chaplains, supported by the Trust, and honorary chaplains supported by their Church. The chaplains represent the main Christian denominations, and are available to patients, families and staff. The Team is also represented on the Trust Bereavement Network.
The Methodist Chaplains have pastoral responsibility for people of other Christian denominations (apart from Catholic, Church of Ireland and Presbyterian) and people of Other Faiths. Chaplains visit wards regularly and have time to listen and reflect. They are interested in people’s journey and seek to support the hospital community by their presence and prayers.
The service we offer is confidential and non-judgmental and is available to everyone, irrespective of faith or background. Chaplains are also available to:
- Offer Christian prayer and sacramental ministry
- Make contact with patients’ own faith communities if requested
- Offer times of worship on the hospital sites on special occasions
- Support staff in their work
