Hospital Chaplaincy

Hospital Chaplains

The Anglican Church Southern Queensland’s Hospital Ministry Team provides pastoral care services to patients in over 40 hospitals across Southern Queensland. They are at the cutting edge of ministry, meeting patients and their families at the most vulnerable times in their lives.

Position vacant

Paid after-hours on-call Hospital Chaplain

The PMC is seeking two caring and compassionate Anglican clergy with a call to pastoral ministry in the Brisbane region to provide on-call after-hours chaplaincy services to the Mater Hospitals, Queensland Children’s Hospital, Princess Alexandra Hospital and Greenslopes Private Hospital. As an after-hours Hospital Chaplain, you will be ‘on-call’ between the hours of 3 pm and 7 am to receive urgent requests and attend Brisbane hospitals to provide end of life, bereavement and spiritual crisis pastoral care to patients and families on an as needed basis. The hope is that the two clergy will work together to share and balance the volume of call outs and the frequency of being on call. Typically, there are between 0-3 call outs a week. This role could be compatible with an existing parish ministry. Remuneration will be a fixed amount for the on-call period (rather than an amount for each call out).
To apply: please email an expression of interest to pmc@anglicanchurchsq.org.au. For enquiries, please phone Stephen Harrison, Executive Director, Parishes and Other Mission Agencies Commission: 07 3835 2233.
