Chaplaincy Training Course

21.03.2024

We are excited to be running the second chaplaincy course after easter in collaboration with Anna Chaplaincy. This follows a successful pilot course which ran from November to December 2023 and was attended by eight volunteers and coordinators of Linking Lives partner befriending schemes.

There will be six two-hour sessions of training focusing on the following themes:

Session 1: Introducing Linking Lives and Two’s Company Chaplaincy

Session 2: Living the second half of life

Session 3: The spirituality of ageing

Session 4: Spiritual care for people living with dementia, loss and change

Session 5: Chaplaincy skills

Session 6: Looking forward – the next steps

The course is open to any volunteers or coordinators of Linking Lives/ Two’s Company befriending schemes and each scheme can send up to three representatives maximum as part of this project (Linking Lives UK has received a grant to enable a set number of volunteers to participate in the courses and so we would like to ensure that this is allocated as fairly as possible).To hear some feedback from a participant from the course in 2023, please listen to the clip below.

The next course will run for six weeks on Tuesday evenings from 5.00-7.00pm starting on 23rd April and ending on 28th May 2024.
