Welcome to the Taunton Team Chaplaincy Trust
Adrian Prior-Sankey MBE, Lead Chaplain
Welcome to the Taunton Team Chaplaincy website where you will find information about the work of the Chaplaincy. We love our Town and believe that our work is important for the wellbeing of all who live here.
We regard ourselves as ‘the church on the street’.
The core aim of our Chaplaincy is to serve the community of Taunton. This includes the workforce of Taunton’s many employers for whom we provide workplace chaplains offering a friendly, listening, ear and impartial and confidential support through the ups and downs of life. We also provide a Town Centre Chaplain and team who work out of our Market House office.
Chaplains are local Christians who have a heart for people and have been through an appointment process in order to become part of the team. Some chaplains are ordained (a vicar or minister of some kind) but most are not.
Team members operate as Chaplains a range of in workplace and community settings.
Town Centre Chaplain
Reporting to the Trust Board, our Lead Chaplain Adrian Prior-Sankey serves as the Town Centre Chaplain and is also responsible for the day to day running of the team, including the selection and training of new team members overseeing their placements in liaison with employers and managers. He also maintains links between the chaplaincy and the civic authorities, the business community and the many churches in and around the town.
The Church which has left the building
All our Chaplains are unashamedly Christian, seeing what we do as an expression of God’s love to our community. The outstretched hand of God is shown in the workplace and community through the care and concern of the chaplain. For more information about the basis of our faith click here:- Christianity.
