Hampshire village seeks its own part-time paid Anna Chaplain
Updated: Mar 28
St Catherine’s Church, Littleton, near Winchester – Anna Chaplain (16 hours per week, 3 years fixed-term)
St Catherine’s Church serves a semi-rural population on the edge of Winchester. An important part of that service is our ministry to the older members of our community and their families and carers, including those living and working in the nursing homes situated within the parish. We are seeking to develop this ministry further by the appointment of a part-time, paid Anna Chaplain.
The Anna Chaplain is a pioneering role offering spiritual support to older people and their relatives and carers. It supports the wellbeing of people of all faiths or none, and it encompasses a wider role within the community as an advocate and champion of the contribution older people make to society. At the same time, it encourages the wider church to celebrate and cherish older members of the congregation, as well as other members of the community.
The successful candidate will work in collaboration with the rector and ministry team as well as the network of parish visitors for the parish and the wider Downs Benefice. He or she will also be part of the growing Anna Chaplaincy network, part of BRF (Bible Reading Fellowship).
It is an occupational requirement for the person appointed to be a professing and practising Christian (Equality Act 2010).
