Regional Chaplains

Our Network is supported by a fantastic group of Regional Chaplains and we are building that network in TAS.  Over the next few months we will be strengthening these regional chaplains and providing you with the support you need. 

Chaplaincy Australia Tasmania

Our Chaplaincy network across TAS is growing in size, influence and effectiveness. We are looking forward to building connections with all of the ACC churches in TAS and identifying or establishing a Chaplaincy presence in every church.  

We would invite every Senior Pastor to consider the possibility of raising up at least 1 Chaplain in your church.  

Early in 2019 we will be launching  “The 75% Plan” in TAS.  This is a strategy to get your church ready to respond to whatever crisis faces your community.  We want our Churches to be impacting their communities and also to be ready to respond in an effective way in times of domestic crisis or disaster.  Keep checking in to find out details of this great program. 

If you have any queries, please do not hesitate to contact us through the Chaplaincy office.

Network Support

Our aim is to care for people at their point of need, by communicating the love of Christ in a compassionate and practical way. Equipped with theological training and skills in pastoral care, chaplains minister to people facing deeply distressing and traumatic situations, enabling them to better cope with periods of instability.

If you are interested in becoming a Chaplain then we would love to assist you in your journey. If it is training that you require, Chaplaincy Australia in partnership with Alphacrucis College (AC) can provide you with Chaplaincy specific training that will equip you for this ministry.

If you are already a Chaplain and active within your community but looking for a Network of Chaplains to connect with then please make contact with your State office.

We are committed to supporting you through: 

  • Ongoing support and encouragement through connection with a Regional Chaplain
  • Regular professional development days
  • Annual Chaplaincy Conference
  • Facilitation of mandatory supervision
  • Opportunity to train up and be deployed as part of our Disaster Response Teams
