Our teams of Workplace Chaplains
and wellbeing guidance
It doesn’t seem that long ago since we began our Autumn Chaplaincy course at Solihull Methodist Church but next week we are due to have our final session. Eleven people have taken part and certainly the tutors have enjoyed it – hope the participants have as well. Last Monday our Solihull Town Centre Team took us round the Touchwood Shopping Centre in Solihull and afterwards the manager gave us a talk and answered questions. Looking forward to unleashing some new chaplains on the unsuspecting people of Birmingham And Solihull
Workplace Chaplaincy Course
Do you have a few hours to spare each week? Are you looking for a way to volunteer in the community? Are you, or your church, looking for a way to share the love of Jesus beyond its walls?
CIGB Workplace Chaplaincy is an ecumenical charity which trains, places and supports voluntary workplace chaplains throughout Birmingham and Solihull, often in partnership with local church outreach programmes. Workplace chaplains, visit and befriend people of all faiths and none in their places of work offering support and a confidential ‘listening ear’. Whilst chaplains will respond positively to enquiries about their personal faith, they do not pro-actively proselytise, or set-out to convert people. Chaplains follow in a long tradition of faithful love with people outside the usual boundaries of the church community.
We don’t expect all our chaplains to be ordained ministers or priests – simply to be adult Christians, of any age, and with the encouragement of their churches.Currently we have vacancies for chaplains in Solihull, Knowle, Olton, and Longbridge shopping centres, as well as fire stations, bus garages, and Jaguar Land Rover.
CIGB Workplace Chaplaincy runs Introduction to Workplace Chaplaincy training courses for those seeking to discern and learn more about the role.
Our Autumn 2023 Course is fully booked but we hope to hold a course in Spring 2024
