We Provide Hospitals with Chaplains
Hospital Chaplains offer pastoral, spiritual, and religious care to those within the DHB community 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 the Ministry of Health and work alongside the DHBs to ensure our Chaplains are held to a high standard of professionalism.
Throughout the seasons of life, ICHC is ready to assist through inclusion, compassion, hope and care. Please find a full copy of our Statement of Intent 2018 - 2021 here.
Volunteer with a chaplaincy team
Chaplains rely on the support of their local community to continue the great work they do. Volunteering with a local team involves working alongside the Chaplains to help provide pastoral care to friends, family, patients, and staff.
