“Chaplaincy Today” is a 4-week course run by MitE Chaplaincy.
On this 4-week online course, we explore together what it means to be a chaplain, where it can be done, why it is done and why it works. This is an opportunity to ask questions, find out more, explore possibilities for yourself. You can either sign up individually or the course can be tailored for a particular church or group. The course is open to anyone of any denomination, whether they are just curious about chaplaincy or feel drawn to chaplaincy, whether they are lay or ordained. There is a small charge for this course – please discuss this if it is a problem. All are welcome. The course is currently being run via Zoom.
The next course begins on Tuesday 23rd February 2021
