Our Christian chaplains are committed to helping in any way they can, no matter what your beliefs are.

Chaplains are experienced and qualified professionals who are present in workplaces to offer care in the name of Christ to anyone who needs it. For many people who do not attend a church, the chaplain may be the first port of call in a time of personal stress, family difficulty, illness or spiritual questioning.

Employers increasingly realise that pastoral and spiritual care are important for a healthy workforce, and chaplains are providing this care and services in a wide variety of Western Australian workplaces including sea-going vessels, schools, universities, hospitals and aged care, prisons, or living and working alongside women and men in the Defence Forces and the Police Force.

The Diocese of Perth through membership of the Perth College of Divinity supports the teaching of and research into theology at Murdoch University where alongside degrees in divinity, theology, and religious studies the University offers a Graduate Diploma and Master’s degree in Chaplaincy. Such qualifications provide the very best in pre-and in-service training for those who believe God is calling them to be a chaplain in this Church.

If you would like a chaplain to attend your workplace, please contact us. Our Chaplaincy Co-ordinator is The Reverend Jacob Legarda.
