We provide hospitals with ecumenical chaplains
Ecumenical means “Belonging to the whole world; universal, general, world-wide“. It means recognising and embracing the differences that make us human.
Our chaplains work alongside the DHBs to offer patients and their whanau or family emotional and spiritual care in times of need. They are there to listen and offer comfort where welcome, regardless of a person’s religious or spiritual beliefs.
With all the cutbacks, staff restructuring, and constant changes that happen to healthcare teams within hospitals, our chaplains are also there to provide a safe and confidential listening ear for hospital staff.
For many, being a hospital chaplain is a calling, and they approach it with passion, reverence, and insight.
