A Day in the Life

One of the challenges and exciting facets of armed forces chaplaincy is the varied form our ministry takes.  Military chaplains are posted to different units for periods of 2-4 years, known as “tours”.  This can be either as part of a team on a large unit or on your own on a smaller unit.  These tours can encompass chaplaincy on operational units, teaching units and hospitals.  No two tours are ever alike so you are constantly learning new things whilst building on your past experience.
