Taking time for you

Chaplaincy at Visionwest involves physical, emotional and spiritual support to Visionwest whānau (clients and staff) and is handled by the pastoral team at Glen Eden Baptist Church.

This support can be anything from a simple chat about how things are going, to helping with complex issues and acting as a link between you and our wraparound support services.

Through our Chaplaincy programme, we are committed to helping in any way we can, no matter what your beliefs are.

What our Chaplain does

In providing wraparound care, Visionwest Community Trust recognises the need to take a holistic approach when offering support to whānau. This includes an appreciation of each person’s wairua or spirituality being an integral part of their wellbeing, which means remaining impartial and accepting people for who they are and where they are at without discrimination or judgement.

Our chaplaincy programme is key in journeying alongside our whānau and staff, particularly in times of need, which means:

 

  •  Listening to needs of whānau that have often been unheard.
  • Offering pastoral care, prayer and practical support.
  • Providing a safe space for people to explore their spirituality and connection with God, particularly in relation to their current life situation.
  • Helping people consider and explore te taha wairua as an integral part of their wellbeing.
  • Working alongside other professionals to provide holistic support to whānau.
