Community Chaplains work as Volunteers with the support of their minister to bring the love of Jesus to their local community. Many engage in activities or groups that they are currently connected to, such as sports clubs, walking groups, playgroups, hospitals and so on…
To be authorised by the Anglican Diocese of Sydney as an Anglican Community Chaplain, you need an ENC Community Chaplaincy Award. To be eligible for this award you need to have engaged in some theological and pastoral training.
The Community Chaplaincy Award is issued by Evangelism and New Churches and is not a Moore College award.
In Partnership with ENC, these Preliminary Theological Certificate (PTC) units can be used as theological training towards this award:
- Introduction to the Bible
- Promise to Fulfilment
- Mark’s Gospel (New Testament 1)
- the Knowledge of God (Doctrine 1)
More information about this area of ministry and how to apply for the ENC Community Chaplaincy Award can be found on the ENC Chaplaincy webpage.
