Healthcare Chaplaincy – What’s the point?

Life & Learning @ Ludlow

Thursday 24 January
10:00am — 12:00noon

Ludlow Mascall Centre

Speaker: The Revd Grant Holmes

When the NHS was founded the role of a Chaplain was not specified as everybody assumed that it was essential to the Service that was being offered to the nation and to individuals. Over the last 70 years that assumption has died a death and chaplaincy now has to prove itself each and every day within an overstretched and under resourced NHS.  This lecture will try to present an understanding and experience of chaplaincy that can underpin its continued place within the NHS.

Fr Grant Holmes was ordained in 1980 and has served in both parochial and sector ministries. His longest single block of priestly ministry has been as a Chaplain in the NHS. During that time Fr Grant worked alongside members of others faiths, both professionals and volunteers.
