Chaplaincy Services in Hull and East Riding Hospitals

Date:          Monday 19th June 2017, 7.30pm
Venue:       the back room of the Tiger Inn, Lairgate, Beverley, East Yorkshire, HU17 8JG

Our June meeting was a talk by Reverend Adrian Klos, Senior Chaplain at Hull & East Yorkshire Hospitals NHS Trust about hospital chaplaincy services, the role they play in an increasingly non-religious society and what services are available for Humanists.

Adrian Klos is the Head of Chaplaincy Services at Hull and East Yorkshire Hospitals NHS Trust. Originally working as a bricklayer he began training for ordination as Baptist minister in 1993 during which time he served alongside communities in Manchester, Chicago and Arequipa. Adrian’s ministry is inclusive and person centred which has led him to engage in dialogue with various belief groups to provide the broadest support base for those drawing on chaplaincy care in Hull. It was chaplaincy support and how to engage with belief groups around the city that formed the basis of the discussion. Headings explored included: what is chaplaincy; who can deliver chaplaincy support; why does the NHS provide chaplaincy care; what does a chaplain’s role include; what is benefit of volunteers in chaplaincy care; who requests chaplaincy support?
