A celebration of chaplaincy at Derby Cathedral
Sunday 11th May at 6.00pm, with refreshments to follow Evensong
By Phil Johnson
In these secularised days, when people are drawn less to religion, arguably chaplaincy has never been more important. Chaplains draw close to people in all sorts of contexts – schools and colleges, the workplace, in hospital or hospice, at leisure, and in communities of shared experience.
It is rare for chaplains to gather together. But the Workplace Chaplaincy in Derbyshire organisation, an umbrella for many forms of chaplaincy, has a sense that some solidarity and common celebration might work rather well – hence this invitation. We plan an ecumenical celebration of chaplaincy across the city and county.
The invited Guest Preacher at the service is The Rev'd Dr. Keith Albans (Director of Spirituality and Chaplaincy for Methodist Homes).
The service will be preceded at 5.15 p.m at Derby Cathedral by the Workplace Chaplaincy in Derbyshire Annual General Meeting to which you are warmly invited. (Papers for this meeting will be circulated to those indicating they will attend nearer the date.)
I do hope you will be able to come along to what promises to be a very special occasion.
