Ministers Chaplaincy Upgrade


"I recently completed the Ministers Chaplaincy Upgrade. The balance of a 3-day intensive and then assignments in an online setting made the course very manageable.

The intensive equipped me to better understand some of the challenges and principles around issues like mental health and responding to client needs. The assignments resourced me to know what is available in my local area to support people, which I have found invaluable.

It has also opened a door for me to volunteer as a Chaplain in my local community. Highly Recommended."
