Chaplains - an introduction

Chaplaincy is a way of connecting the ministry of the Church to the everyday needs and experiences of people, wherever they are.

One of the strengths of chaplaincy is that the role is recognised by the employing institution e.g. school, college, hospital, prison, police.

School Chaplains
The Diocese of Ely recognises that many people support the work of, and volunteer in, their local church school. We want to strengthen this partnership between the church and the local church school through the development of a two-stage chaplaincy programme. Training to be an Authorised Chaplaincy Assistant (ACA) is the first stage of this process and will provide a basis for the development of the chaplaincy programme.
