Welcome to the Taunton Team Chaplaincy Trust
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 consider ourselves to be ‘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 who offer 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 from our Market House offices.
Chaplains are local Christians who have a heart for people and have been through a selection process including application, references and interview in order to become part of the team. Some chaplains are ordained (a vicar or minister of some kind) and others are not.
Chaplains operate as Workplace Chaplains, Office Based Chaplains at our Market House facility or Street Chaplains who assist the Town Centre Chaplain.
Town Centre Chaplain
Reporting to the Trust Board the Lead Chaplain Adrian Prior-Sankey works as Town Centre Chaplain and is also responsible for the day to day running of the team including selection and training chaplains of and liaison with employers and managers. He also maintains links between the chaplaincy and churches in the town.
The Church which has left the building
All of the 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.
