25 people attended this Circuit event held at Wantage Methodist Church on Saturday 28th January.

Revd Robert Jones carefully and expertly led us in our thinking about Chaplaincy — the how, why where, what and when questions.

From St. Martin of Tours, to modern day chaplains in airports, town centres, and shopping centres, we looked at the work of chaplains.

In groups and together, we pondered the specific key characteristics of chaplaincy and how in our current age, the role of chaplains is crucial.

All this of course was set in the context of our innovative chaplaincy project for the Great Western Park, which we hope and pray will be up and running by late spring!
