Spiral of Chaplaincy Development

The Spiral of Chaplaincy Development is an effective and flexible set of resources that will enable your local church to develop chaplaincy.

The six steps of the spiral represent the learning and experience from the Chaplaincy Development Project and are important stages in establishing a chaplaincy that is built to last. The spiral gives you an overview of the process and provides an effective index for the resources that accompany each step.

Because we never claim to release the finished article, each resource has a version number. We invite and welcome feedback from all those who use our resources so that together we can shape chaplaincy resources for the benefit of everyone. We hope that in the years ahead we will add to this body of work as we continue to listen and respond to the work taking place in communities across the country.

The following material can be shaped to serve the needs of your church community and should be seen as a springboard into ministry rather than a prescriptive approach to ministry!
