BaptistCare Chaplains - Here For You

We all know there are no two people the same. As a Christian, not-for-profit organisation, BaptistCare is here to respect and care for you, as you. We want to support you in any area you feel necessary – whether that’s physically, emotionally or spiritually. That’s why, as part of our ongoing care, we offer a chaplaincy service to all our community clients and residents.

Chaplains are here to support you through life’s challenges and experiences, even if you’re not religious. They’ll spend time getting to know you; talking you through anything you need and discussing what matters to you. This is often the start of a wonderful friendship between our chaplains and our clients, residents and their communities - and we can’t wait for you to be involved.

What Is A Chaplain?

Chaplains are open-minded and approachable people who love God and love other people. The chaplains who work at BaptistCare have been trained to respond to the individual needs of residents, community clients and families – there is no matter too big or small.

Our chaplains support people across all our BaptistCare services. You will also find our chaplains connecting with people in hospitals, prisons, and other community settings in a range of other environments

What If I’m Not Religious?

While chaplains are able to help you explore faith issues, don’t worry if you are not religious – their role is more about relationships than religion. Whatever your faith or background, our chaplain would be happy to meet you.
