Black Country Urban Industrial Mission is providing a free ‘Chaplaincy Taster’ event at St. James Church, Hilltop, West Bromwich, B70 0SB, from 10.30am to 12.30pm on Saturday 11 May. This free event will provide an insight into chaplaincy, without a requiring commitment to the full training course. Industrial chaplains work alongside people in various industries including factories, offices, workshops and bus depots. Wherever someone earns their bread, a chaplain may be there as a friend and confidant.
BCUIM is looking for church members in, or near to, the Black Country, who are keen to take up this varied ministry. Chaplains need to be good listeners, have a robust faith and like a challenge. One of BCUIM’s retiring chaplains described his chaplaincy as one of the best experiences of his Christian ministry. For more details, or to let BCUIM know if plan to attend, e-mail email@example.com or call 01902 710407.
