The Spirit In Mind project has been established to promote collaboration between the NHS and different faith communities and is being developed in line with the NHS plan to achieve an integrated system of health promotion and preventative care which is necessary to meet the future health needs of the population. The project seeks to build on the experience of faith organisations in responding to social and health care needs i.e. their deep understanding of local health needs and priorities as well as their strong local presence and direct channel in to deprived and hard to reach neighbourhoods.
The project is now looking to recruit Volunteer Lay Chaplains (Mental Health) as an exciting opportunity for involvement in NHS pastoral ministry.
There will be a 12 week course commencing Monday 2 September 2019.
They are seeking people with a strong faith background and enthusiasm, openness, sensitivity and commitment to join a lively and highly motivated team of chaplains, trainers, counsellors and volunteer support.
There will be:
- Comprehensive training
- Ongoing support and professional development opportunities
- Experience of working within a vibrant and caring NHS healthcare team
- Participation in innovative faith and healthcare projects
- Involvement in a very rewarding sphere of pastoral ministry
Following an initial informal discussion with members of the chaplaincy team, suitable applicants will be invited to complete the Trust’s volunteer recruitment process. This includes a reference from their local minister or faith leader as well as clearance checks for safeguarding purposes.
If you are interested or would like further information, please contact the Pastoral and Spiritual Care Department on 01924 316282 to speak to Revd Stephen Oakley or Revd Mike Gartland

Sunday 3 March – The North Side of Elland.
Elland goes back to at least 1086 yet in 1760 much of the land was open land. In the century that followed, the arrival of canal, railway, new roads, industry and more housing changed things radically.
