Exploring Chaplaincy Today
Did you know that there are chaplains in nearly every sector of public life? In the past 30 years, chaplaincy has grown and developed in many ways. Areas, previously closed to chaplains, are now actively seeking pastoral care and support from dedicated (often volunteer) persons who have a heart for people. Chaplains offer a listening ear, a smile, a conversation for people who may not otherwise have the support they need in times of crisis or to share in their joy.
Come and explore chaplaincy at NTC Manchester. This day conference is designed for current chaplains and those who are interested in chaplaincy. Learn from active chaplains, hear stories of how chaplaincy opens the doors to faith, and be inspired to support chaplaincy in your local area.

Secretary for prison chaplaincy and free churches faith advisor
