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. Chaplains follow in a long tradition of faithful love with people outside the usual boundaries of the church community.
We don’t expect all our chaplains to be ordained ministers or priests – simply to be adult Christians, of any age, and with the encouragement of their churches.
Currently we have vacancies for chaplains in Solihull, Knowle, Olton, and Longbridge shopping centres, as well as fire stations, bus garages, and Jaguar Land Rover.
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 25th September 2023 at Solihull Methodist Church, 5pm – 7pm. This church is right next to Solihull Railway Station which is served by frequent trains from Birmingham Moor Street, Dorridge and Acocks Greein
