Introduction to Workplace Chaplaincy Training Course

Do you have a few hours to spare each week?  Are you looking for a way to volunteer in the community?  Are you, or your church, looking for a way to share the love of Jesus beyond its walls?

CIGB Workplace Chaplaincy is an ecumenical charity which trains, places and supports voluntary workplace chaplains throughout Birmingham and Solihull, often in partnership with local church outreach programmes.  Workplace chaplains, visit and befriend people of all faiths and none in their places of work offering support and a confidential ‘listening ear’.  Whilst chaplains will respond positively to enquiries about their personal faith, they do not pro-actively proselytise, or set-out to convert people. They do, however, seek opportunities to come alongside people in their work, as Jesus did.  Chaplains follow in a long tradition of faithful love with people outside the usual boundaries of the church community. They also enrich church life by feeding their experiences of God’s ongoing gospel back into their congregations. We don’t expect all our chaplains to be ordained ministers or priests – simply to be adult Christians, of any age, and of good standing in their churches.

Currently we have vacancies for chaplains in Birmingham and Solihull in places such as shopping centres, fire stations, retirement villages, FE colleges, bus garages, and Birmingham Airport. Also, maybe your church is looking to have a more visible presence in its local shops, FE colleges, entertainment or hospitality venues, factories, businesses, or care homes. If so, we would love to begin working with local churches to make this a reality, by training their volunteers in chaplaincy.

CIGB Workplace Chaplaincy runs Introduction to Workplace Chaplaincy training courses for those seeking to discern and learn more about the role.  The next seven-week course begins on Monday 3rd June 2024 in Birmingham City Centre, 5pm – 7pm. Places are limited and applications need to be received by Tuesday 21st May 2024.

For more information about the course please contact teamadmin@cigb.org.uk  or download the course description from our website www.cigb.org.uk or Facebook page.
