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 Wollaston Theological College and our partnership with Trinity College, Melbourne, supports students undertaking courses in Theology and Divinity at the University of Divinity in preparation for Chaplaincy ministry.  Such courses may involve a Diploma in Theology or a Graduate Certificate or Graduate Diploma in Theology or Divinity or Bachelor or Masters degrees in these fields.  For more information contact the college at or go to University of Divinity | Courses.
