Chaplains Conference

United Chaplains Conference for AOG, Elim and Apostolic UK Churches


The tears, the confusion, the grief of a broken world is the daily encounter of chaplains. We bring the loving presence of Christ to impossible situations. Chaplains do not fear the dark places of human society; they know the one who is the light of the world.

This chaplains conference is open to pastors, church members and delegates who want to explore chaplaincy ministry.

As chaplains, it is our high privilege to love and to lead the people in our care. It is our responsibility to pray for, to serve, to care and to extravagantly love them. Chaplains must be willing to invest in self-care too!

We believe attendance should be a priority for every chaplain and will prove to be a wise investment of your time and resources. Remember that your organisation may be willing to fully or partly fund your attendance from their training budget.

This annual conference is a brilliant time for pastors and members of our churches who are involved in chaplaincy, it is also designed for individuals who are interested in getting involved.

Alongside the programme and speaker line-up, the opportunity to build friendships and meet up with others who are passionate about chaplaincy ministry is an amazing experience.

We look forward to seeing you in September.
