Care under Covid-19: Providing spiritual and pastoral support at a distance

Home/Community/Care under Covid-19: Providing spiritual and pastoral support at a distance
Loading Events

Throughout the pandemic, chaplains, faith advisors and pastoral carers have been supporting the isolated, offering a listening ear to the anxious, and comforting the ill, dying and bereaved. This free event brings together a panel of them to discuss spiritual and pastoral care at a time of physical distance.

Chaplains have been more needed than ever before, but the nature of their work has had to change dramatically. While some have remained in their workplace, many others have no longer been able to offer support in person. This raises important questions about the nature and future of spiritual and pastoral care. What does it look like when physical presence is restricted or lost? What should chaplains and others learn from the pandemic to develop their practice? And how can this sector, which involves a high proportion of volunteers, be given the support and recognition it deserves?

Starts: Wednesday 17th March, 7pm – 8:30pm
