Opportunities in Chaplaincy for the ordained and lay person continue to grow as increasingly organisations recognise the distinct skills and services such a ministry can provide and because many people have no relationship with a local worshipping community.

In the Diocese of Perth, Chaplains minister in many contexts:

  • Schools
  • Hospitals
  • Aged care
  • The Australian Defence Force
  • WA Police
  • Prisons
  • Industrial, including mining companies
  • Sporting clubs

The Diocese of Perth through its membership of the Perth College of Divinity supports the teaching of and research into theology at Murdoch University where alongside degrees in divinity, theology, and religious studies the University offers a Graduate Diploma and Master’s degree in Chaplaincy.  Such qualifications provide the very best in pre- and in-service training for those who believe God is calling them to be a Chaplain in his Church.
