Spiritual Care and Chaplaincy referrals

St Nicholas Hospice Care’s Spiritual and Chaplaincy team is available to offer pastoral, religious and spiritual care to all those receiving our services, those people that are important to them and to staff and volunteers.

St Nicholas Hospice Care has a full-time Christian chaplain and a team of volunteers. The team is committed to supporting spiritual, religious and pastoral needs both in the hospice building and throughout the communities we serve.

The team offers support and a listening ear as well as arranging remembrance services and offering sacramental support when requested and appropriate.

The team can help with practical issues such as planning funerals, officiating at funerals, and liaising with other faith ministers.
