Assistant Chaplains are trained volunteers from local Uniting Church congregations who are connected with a venue such as a hospital or aged care facility. They usually visit once a week and provide pastoral support to the patients/residents, family members and staff.
Assistant Chaplains are usually Elders in their local Uniting Church congregation and are committed to providing quality pastoral care to people in healthcare or aged care.
Assistant Chaplains work in conjunction with the staff at their assigned venue.
Assistant Chaplains have undergone an orientation and accreditation program and receive ongoing support and training as part of their role.
BRHC acknowledges the contribution of the former congregation of Pleasant Street Uniting Church in the creation of this website. BRHC operates on primarily on Waddawarrung Country. We pay our respects to their Elders - past, present and emerging.
