The chaplaincy forum connects organisations and chaplaincy areas together to support the development of chaplaincy across Britain. This page provides information about current members of the forum. There are several ways people are connected to the forum:

  • Members of the Connexional Team whose work involves or may link with chaplaincy.
  • Organisations and ecumenical partners that have a significant role in the development of chaplaincy across Britain.
  • Individual chaplains who have applied to be on the forum to represent particular chaplaincy areas.

If you are interested in connecting with the forum, please contact Gary Hopkins, who convenes the forum as part of his role supporting chaplaincy in the Methodist Church. Individuals who apply to be representatives on the forum follow this role outline
