Providing Chaplaincy

We Provide Hospitals with Chaplains

Hospital Chaplains offer pastoral, spiritual, and religious care to those within New Zealand Hospitals in accordance with the Te Whare Tapa Wha model of health. Chaplains listen and provide service to all people regardless of their religious denomination, faith orientation, belief system, ethnicity, gender, or sexual orientation.

For many, being a Hospital Chaplain is a calling, and they approach it with passion, reverence, and insight.

We are proud to be supported by Te Whatu Ora, Churches, Donors, and Local Committees as we work alongside Te Whatu Ora to ensure our Chaplains are held to a high standard of professionalism.

Throughout the seasons of life, our chaplains are ready to assist through inclusion, compassion, hope and care.
