World Faith: The Interfaith Service Network

Merseyside Police multi-faith chaplaincy launched 27 July , 2011

There are ten chaplains who will be on hand to offer confidential support and advice to police officers and staff across Merseyside.

The volunteers, who all have other jobs, represent the Christian, Jewish, Muslim and Sikh faiths.

The chaplains, which include two serving officers and ordained ministers, will be on hand to help people with personal and work issues.

Chief Constable Jon Murphy said: “Our new chaplains are invaluable in helping us to engage in a more meaningful way with the diverse groups within Merseyside Police.

“We work hard to support officers and staff through what can be a very difficult and challenging job on behalf of the people of Merseyside, and these volunteer chaplains will enable us to further that support.”

The head of the new Chaplaincy Service, Reverend Keith Hitchman said: “I am delighted to be heading up this new service for Merseyside Police.

“There is much in the faith traditions that can be of help to those of all beliefs or of none, and we are available to all officers and staff.

“My fellow chaplains and I are looking forward to offering both spiritual and pastoral support to those who need it, impartially and regardless of individual belief systems.”
