Methodist Forces Board Pastoral Projects
The MFB is responsible for a growing number of pastoral projects across the UK military. These projects support local chaplains to extend their contact with service personnel and their families and our workers collaborate with the local chaplaincy team.
Our aim is to deliver reliable and compassionate Christian pastoral care to all, regardless of religion or belief. Each project is shaped by local factors, and has a particular focus - for instance, one is focused on children and young people of military families, another on families of serving personnel.
For more information please see the latest annual report for the pastoral projects.
Further projects are being developed. If you are interested in learning more about any of the stories in this report, or to discuss a potential project, please contact Phil Maltby, MFB Projects Officer on 07974 208360 or firstname.lastname@example.org
