The main purposes of an Anna Chaplain are:

  • Offering spiritual support to older people who are living in care homes and sheltered housing complexes, their relatives and staff who look after them.
  • Promoting the spiritual welfare of older people in the wider community, particularly those facing challenges living independently.

Churches Together in Cumbria are launching a two-year Project to introduce and establish Anna Chaplaincy as a ministry of the Church in Cumbria. They are looking to appoint a person in a lead role to co-ordinate and oversee this work. The post will involve working from home with travel across the County.
