Cost: £50

Notice from Churches and Industry Group Birmingham and Solihull (CIGB):

CIGB Workplace Chaplaincy’s Voluntary Chaplains support adults in workplaces and communities across Birmingham and Solihull. Workplace Chaplaincy is a clear sign that God is engaged in our lives 7 days a week, 24 hours a day.  Chaplaincy is a key strand in the Church of England’s inspiration to encourage active ministry in all areas of daily life. You can read some stories from our Chaplaincies on Facebook @CIGB1.

Workplace Chaplains proactively encounter people in workplaces to offer listening and support; and to grow opportunities to help people see that God is in our daily work. Voluntary chaplains typically give about half a day a week to this ministry. Our chaplains find the experience uplifting. They report that is has also helped them to grow their faith.

CIGB, a local Christian charity, has been providing ecumenical Workplace Chaplaincy for over 40 years and has an existing team of 60 part-time chaplains from a rich variety of churches. Training is over 7 Monday evenings from 11 Feb and teaches some of the core skills and strategies for Workplace Chaplaincy.

Attending the course is not a commitment to start chaplaincy; nor does it guarantee a chaplaincy role at the end: a discernment conversation takes place towards the end of the course. Our chaplaincies are in places like shops, offices, fire service, transport and construction sites.

More information and registration form available on the CIGB website.
