Regional Chaplains

Our Network is supported by a fantastic group of Regional Chaplains located in each of the designated regions in VIC. Our Regional Chaplains are all active in Chaplaincy ministry and they are there to provide face to face support and encouragement to each of our Network Members.

Mental Health First Aid Course

Learn skills and gain confidence to assist friends, family and co-workers experiencing mental health problems.

Mental health first aid is the help provided to a person who is developing
a mental health problem, experiencing a worsening of a mental health problem or in a mental health crisis. The first aid is given until the appropriate professional help is received or the crisis resolves.

This 2-day course will be faciliated by Pastor Ralph Estherby (National Director CA) who is has wide experience in offering assistance to individuals in need of Mental Health support.  

This is a great professional development opportunity for chaplains and for members of the public who want to be able to render appropriate assistance.

Hi everyone,
On behalf of Chaplaincy Aust-Vic team, we would like to take the opportunity to thank everyone who attended the ‘Just for You’ BBQ in October and our most recent ‘regional hub’ gathering.

It thrilled our hearts to see our chappies & friends leaning in to what God has in store for both CA-Vic and for Chaplaincy Nationwide. I believe we are on the cusp of a new day with new initiatives to take us to where we’ve not been before.

To achieve all that God has for us we have the beginnings of a new team, along with sector & regional leaders on board. A big thank you to those who have joined our Vic team, and believing in the work of the ministry.

For others, I would like to invite you to consider & commit to prayer your part in the ongoing work of Chaplaincy Australia, Victoria.

There is much to do and people like you are our most valued asset; bringing your strengths and gifting’s to add value, influence, and to be positioned to impact others across our state and beyond.
There are so many ways you can partner with us so please don’t hesitate to contact us! 

Chaplains are making a difference to Australian Society – one person at a time

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
