1 Workplace Chaplain Nottingham South Deanery

2 The Workplace Chaplain holds relationships with several of major companies and other organisations which are situated within Nottingham city centre and beyond. The role involves offering pastoral support to employees, both through personal visits by the chaplain and also by means of the leadership of a team of voluntary lay chaplains. A new element of the chaplain s role is to raise awareness of the chaplaincy in the wider area of the Nottingham South Deanery, with the intention of inspiring new people and churches to become involved. The Chaplaincy to Commerce and Industry in Nottingham was set up in 1989 by an initiative from the first occupant of the post, the late Revd Wally Huckle, who, prior to ordination, had been Managing Director of a well-known local firm. Under his guidance, and in collaboration with the then Rector of St Peter's in the city centre, and with the Diocese, the Chaplaincy quickly gained a high reputation for the quality of care being offered to people in their workplaces, which included major stores, law and accountancy firms, industrial units and civil service sites such as the Crown Court and Inland Revenue (as was). From time to time, the Chaplain was also invited to be a part of debate within companies on business ethics and to offer personal support to senior managers at significant times of change. In 2001, following Wally's retirement, the Revd David McCoulough took on the role. The Chaplaincy has developed in a number of directions and was renamed 'Nottingham Workplace Chaplaincy' in New clients were recruited and a team of voluntary chaplains shared the work between them. In 2008 Revd Alison Maddocks was appointed Workplace Chaplain; in 2011 a review was made of the work of the Chaplaincy, and Revd Rachel Shock, who had previously been the ichaplain, offering pastoral care over the internet, was appointed as a 0.5 Chaplain. The main companies and other organisations which are currently served by the Workplace Chaplain are Capital One, Nottingham City Transport, Bio City, solicitors firms such as Freeth Cartwright and Browne Jacobson, the Crown and Magistrates' Courts and Nottingham YMCA. The client list for the chaplaincy also includes a number of large retail outlets, notably Marks and Spencer, British Home Stores, John Lewis, Debenhams, as well as the staff of the managing organisations of the two major shopping malls, the Victoria and Broadmarsh Centres. The retail outlets are largely served by members of the lay chaplaincy team, which is overseen by the Workplace Chaplain; these lay chaplains come from a variety of backgrounds, including the local Methodist and Catholic churches as well as other Anglican churches. There are also volunteers who support the chaplains by offering support and counselling to clients in fields such as bereavement, parenting, and sexual health. 2

3 The Chaplaincy organises regular lunch time Insight meetings at which those in leadership and positions of responsibility in Nottingham are given an overview of various aspects of the way the city centre works. These meetings offer an opportunity to network and discuss matters of current concern and interest. There have been a series of City Debates, usually at St Peter s church, which address topics of current interest, especially on the relationship between faith, society and economy. A number of events and services for those from local workplaces are held at various times during the year, such as the annual Workers Memorial Day service and some carol services. In the past the Chaplaincy has supported a local Christians at Work Group and engaged with God on Monday agenda, encouraging people to live out their faith in their workplaces. This very significant ministry of the Workplace Chaplaincy takes place in the context of a city that has a national reputation as a commercial and leisure centre. Over the years, it has come to be very well received and valued by client organisations, with whom a considerable degree of trust and goodwill has been built up. There is a real opportunity to expand the work of the chaplaincy across the southern half of the city through Lenton and Beeston where most of our largest employers outside the centre are based. There have been three sources of funding for the work of the Workplace Chaplaincy over the past twenty years or so. One third came from the Diocese, one third from the St Peter s Trust Fund, and one third from clients. During , however, discussions took place with the Diocese and the Nottingham South Deanery with the objective of integrating the Workplace Chaplaincy post into the Diocesan 2020 staffing plan. The Workplace Chaplain post is jointly funded by the Diocese, clients and St Peter s Trust Funds. Full-Time funding is guaranteed for almost 5 years subject to ongoing business donations. Nottingham South Deanery is a densely populated multicultural area spreading from prosperous suburbs in the west with a tradition of strong, independent (largely Evangelical) congregations, through areas heavily shaped by the presence of the University of Nottingham, to more socially deprived urban areas, the city centre and business districts. Our context and very different spiritual traditions offer rich diversity, and real mission potential. In 2014 a deanery 2020 plan for 18.7 paid posts was agreed, and parishes grouped into Minster- Hubs based on common missional and contextual opportunities and grouping together a diversity of church size and function. Their purpose is evangelism, leadership development, and mission in the wider community. Nottingham is a vibrant city with a wide range of shops, restaurants, cultural activities, schools, colleges, two excellent universities and two highly regarded hospitals. It has a good public transport system, easy access to the national motorway network, and excellent direct rail connections to many other cities. The Peak District National Park is less than an hour away. A statement about The Diocese of Southwell and Nottingham can be found on the next page.

4 THE DIOCESE OF SOUTHWELL & NOTTINGHAM GROWING THE CHURCH WIDER, YOUNGER AND DEEPER A statement from the Bishop of Southwell & Nottingham, Rt Revd Paul Williams and the Archdeacon of Nottingham, Venerable Sarah Clark The Diocese of Southwell and Nottingham incorporates the City of Nottingham, the whole County of Nottinghamshire and five parishes in South Yorkshire. The population is 1.15 million 51% live in the greater Nottingham conurbation, 31% in ex-mining areas and 18% in rural. In 2011 the Diocese reaffirmed its commitment to Joining Together in the Transforming Mission of God with a focus on three core strands: Living Worship, Growing Disciples and Seeking Justice. Following the arrival of a new diocesan bishop in June 2015 we are now looking beyond 2020 at what kind of church we would like to be in 2025 and As a diocese we have made a refreshed commitment to care for every soul in the diocese with an increased focus on growing disciples. The Senior Staff team has established the first stage of a vision to grow the church wider, younger and deeper. Wider in that we will seek to grow disciples in every part of the diocese, with no retreat from any community: urban centre, outer estates, rural villages or market towns. Younger in that we will seek fresh ways to harness the boldness and creativity of children, students and young people across the diocese, not least in Nottingham which is the 4th youngest city outside London. Deeper as we grow in knowing Christ, so that as his disciples we can be an increasing blessing to the people among whom we live and serve in the workplace, family and community. As part of a renewed strategy for growth we aspire to be purposeful and imaginative in the mission field and the frontline of working life. We long to equip each of our chaplains for their particular ministry, mindful of the sensitivities of operating in a secular environment. Engaging with the world beyond the walls of the church is one of the missional priorities of the Nottingham South deanery leadership team. The Workplace Chaplaincy is viewed as an integral part of this outward looking focus. Bishop Paul has said: It is my prayer that the new Workplace Chaplain will have the creative leadership and imagination to nurture current relationships in the city centre of Nottingham, plan for growth and enable Christians to live out their faith in the workplace.
