    What Is Chaplaincy?

    Rod Boreham took up post as Guildford’s first Town Centre Chaplain on 1st January 2010. Town Centre Chaplaincy aims to build bridges of understanding, trust and cooperation between communities of work, faith, leisure and society and to provide a caring, listening presence for anyone who lives in, works in or visits the town centre.

    Chaplains are available on a confidential basis for people to support their emotional and spiritual well-being, visiting local workplaces (including companies, department stores, theatres, shopping centres, nightclubs, banks, civic offices and leisure locations) with the agreement of the management and staff.

    Who Is Chaplaincy For?

    The chaplaincy service is open to all without discrimination. Chaplains are motivated by their Christian faith to care for people and communities. Their role is simply to offer care and comfort and a listening ear to people of any faith or none. The Chaplaincy aims to complement existing provision and services including other chaplaincies in Guildford such as those at the College, University, in the Police and at the hospital.

    Prayer And Reflection

    “So let us learn how to serve, And in our lives enthrone Him; Each other's needs to prefer, For it is Christ we're serving.”

    (Graham Kendrick)
