Become a volunteer prison chaplain
Use your life experience to minister to people in our correctional centres.
If you are called to provide pastoral care and provide non-judgemental support to prisoners, irrespective of their faith, beliefs, social position, religious background or their past, please call 07 3550 3789. We are seeking volunteer prison chaplains with the time and the heart to respectfully listen to prisoners and support them on their faith journey.
What is involved with volunteer prison chaplaincy?
› Attend and provide pastoral support at a correctional centre one day per week
› Conduct a Sunday service once every six weeks
You will be trained and supported to succeed in your role.
Chaplains also participate in the local Chaplaincy Team Meeting at a Correctional Centre at least once a quarter although monthly is preferable. To find out more about the pastoral needs of prisoners, please consult the State Chaplaincy Board Handbook particularly pages four to 20.
