Chaplaincy resources

Download “A Day in the Life of a Uniting Church Chaplain” video:

Chaplaincy Sunday is an annual event that encourages church communities to focus on the ministry of chaplaincy one Sunday a year. The theme changes year-to-year and, while a date is suggested, resources could be used at any time during the year.


The theme for 2018 is Making Connections and the resources seek to highlight the role Chaplains play in facilitating the making of connections for and between others with:

  • God
  • themselves
  • spirituality
  • families
  • the other
  • communities
  • church and community
  • purpose and passion

Please feel free to use the resources in whatever way is appropriate for your context. While Chaplaincy Sunday is held on June 10, the resources can also be used at any other time. You could also consider inviting a chaplain to share in worship on Chaplaincy Sunday, or at another time, to tell the story of how they approach their ministry or to share some of the gifts and challenges that they experience as a part of their ministry. Alternatively, you might look at organising a visit with a chaplain to see their work first hand, or holding a service in a different setting like a park with a chaplain to help explore with them what ministry looks like outside the gathered community.

All ages. All stages

Celebrate chaplains across the Uniting Church in Queensland as they support young people and their families—people of all ages—to live life in all its fullness.

Chaplaincy Sunday resources are offered for use in worship gatherings across the state.

The theme this year is All ages. All stages and the resources seek to highlight the rich character of chaplaincy with young people and their families. From schools to hospitals to the families of inmates, chaplains work with the whole family.

The ministry of chaplaincy occurs across generations and cultures.

You could also consider inviting a chaplain to share in worship on Chaplaincy Sunday, or at another time, to tell the story of how they approach their ministry or to share some of the gifts and challenges that they experience as a part of their ministry.

 

The year’s theme for Chaplaincy Sunday is All People All Places and the resources seek to highlight the rich multicultural character of chaplaincy. The ministry of chaplaincy occurs in multicultural contexts, among people from many different cultures and is carried out by chaplains from a range of cultural backgrounds. This reality is a reflection of the call and commitment of the Uniting Church in Australia to be a truly multicultural church.

The Chaplaincy Commission thanks the Multi-Cross Cultural Reference Group and contributors for their input and support in making these resources available.
