Derby City Centre Chaplaincy is delighted to have a rapidly growing team of Chaplains to serve staff and residents in local residential and nursing homes. Chaplains are currently placed at Brookfields and Burton Lodge in Littleover, Liversage Court and Castle Park Homes in the city centre, Bluebell Court in Chellaston, and Merrill House in Sinfin. We are also in the process of setting up Chaplaincy at Perth House in Chaddesden, and in liaison with the newly formed Belper Town Chaplaincy, at Holbrook Hall near Duffield.
‘This is an exciting new area of growth for Chaplaincy’, says Canon Paul Morris, who oversees Derby City Centre Chaplaincy. ‘Chaplains visit Homes on a regular basis and offer pastoral support and a listening ear to residents who may be going through a painful stage in their lives. Some have few visitors, and to have someone to talk to and share worries and fears with is greatly appreciated. Some have been faithful Churchgoers throughout their lives, and value the connection with others who share their faith.’ The Chaplains also recognise the pressures that many staff face, and can offer a supportive presence and listening ear.
