Chaplain Vacancies

The Interchurch Council for Hospital Chaplaincy (ICHC) comprises a broad composition of Churches. We are committed to promoting, maintaining and developing, relevant, flexible, and competent Chaplaincy services within the Aotearoa New Zealand healthcare environment. The primary purpose of our ministry is to foster good health through excellence in pastoral care. Our Chaplains stand alongside other healthcare professionals in the hospital setting. We are committed to the principles of partnership expressed in the Treaty of Waitangi. Spiritual care and support is provided by Christian Chaplains in the most appropriate way for all healthcare clients, regardless of religious denomination, faith-orientation, beliefs, ethnicity, gender, or sexual orientation. Clients are at liberty to access the spiritual care of their choice. Our Chaplains’ role is to coordinate that process.
