Teaching and training churches to think more creatively about engaging with their communities
Third Space Ministries provides experience and training in chaplaincy, opportunities to be involved in team outreach, teaching and training for churches.
...the provision of a pastoral service, by a person of faith, to an organisation or industry. Chaplaincy is primarily aimed at the care and welfare of the organisation it is serving. Whilst chaplains are expected to be motivated by a real and dynamic faith, they are available to all people irrespective of faith convictions. Chaplains should be pastorally proactive, but spiritually reactive; ensuring that they do not impose their beliefs on others. Their role is not to preach, but to offer care, encouragement and a listening ear to people of any faith or none. Chaplaincy supports the emotional and spiritual well being of a person. Chaplains are expected to demonstrate integrity, work professionally, care sensitively and maintain confidentiality. Developing natural relationships, and building trust is foundational to the whole chaplaincy role. The chaplaincy role varies according to the requirements of the organisation in which it functions.
