CIGB: Volunteer Workplace Chaplains

Churches and Industry Group Birmingham and Solihull (CIGB) has vacancies for volunteer workplace chaplains in our teams in places like shopping centres, the Fire Service, construction sites, and at NEC Group in locations across Birmingham and Solihull.

Volunteers receive training and support in Chaplaincy skills, connecting Chaplaincy to local churches and making sense of workplaces. Volunteer Chaplains are often established Christians who are excited at the prospect of working with God outside of the ‘usual walls’ of the Church, and alongside people of no faith and other faiths. Chaplaincy is about personal support and listening, organisational presence, and awakening people to the bigger questions of life.

CIGB is a growing, diverse, ecumenical charity, with over 50 volunteer chaplains, sponsored by Birmingham Church Leaders.
