Our chaplains are volunteers who give their time to pastorally care for prisoners. There are no mandatory qualifications to become a chaplain however you must demonstrate an ability as a pastoral carer through the appropriate training or equivalent ministry experience.
It can take up to 12 months to become a Duty Chaplain. After completing this process, you are assigned to a correctional centre which you visit once a week. Chaplains are also expected to lead a chapel service in the prison on a Sunday once every six weeks and participate in a monthly team meeting with other chaplains.
