Through Workplace Chaplaincy FWW is in touch with many hundreds of businesses, public sector organisations and people at work. These include shops, offices, supermarkets, charities, factories, service sector organisations, professional services and emergency services including West Mercia Police and Hereford & Worcester Fire and Rescue Service. We also work closely with the Chaplaincy for Agriculture & Rural Life, (CARL) at Worcester Livestock Market.
FWW is a member of the Hereford & Worcester Chamber of Commerce and the federation of Small Business. We are active in urban and rural contexts; with large and small businesses; multi-nationals and local independent businesses.
We seek to get to know those at work, offering care and concern to those at work. This is unconditional, with no strings attached and offered to all. At the core of this is workplace chaplaincy. We train volunteers who visit regularly – but not too frequently – to provide a listening ear.
Having someone outside the immediate community of the workplace who is prepared to listen – confidentially – can be a tremendous support to workers and managers. Conversations can be about anything – it’s up to you.
Faith comes into it because that is what motivates us, the volunteer chaplains and the churches they are part of, to take an interest in the world, and share God’s love. We care because we believe God cares for all people and communities and that we should work together for the common good.
