The Black Country Urban Industrial Mission is an ecumenical chaplaincy working across the four boroughs of the Black Country, offering a Christian presence in businesses, sales outlets and factories. Led by Revd Bill Mash (pictured), BCUIM’s chaplaincy team is enthusiastic about the making the most of the opportunities they have to encourage, reassure and support by their presence in a variety of workplace situations. Chaplains are church members with robust faith, life experience and the ability to listen.
A training course in basic chaplaincy skills will run from 2.30pm to 4.00pm on Mondays, beginning on Monday 21 October. The first session will be held at St James, Hill Top, West Bromwich, B70 0SB. Training sessions are lively and engaging, with plenty of opportunity for participation and questions. Though they include Biblical content, the focus of the sessions is practical, rather than theological or academic. For more information, e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
