Quaker Chaplains and those considering a leading for chaplaincy gathered at Friends House, to hear about the nature of the work in the various shapes it takes: in prisons, hospitals, hospices, universities, workplaces and other settings. Each has its particular aspects, and all have common underlying themes.
Ben Ryan discussed the scope and importance of chaplaincy in the UK today, drawing upon his Theos report A Very Modern Ministry: Chaplaincy in the UK.
The closing talk was given by Alistair Fuller, Head of Ministry and Outreach at Quaker Life, who will consider ways in which chaplains could be more effective and what they might do differently.
