The CUH Chaplaincy Department has a large and well established team of volunteers.  There are two ways of being involved:

As a Chaplaincy Ward Volunteer: ‘adopting’ a ward and visiting patients on a regular (usually 2-3 hours per week) basis.

As a Chaplaincy Sunday Volunteer:  taking Holy Communion to and/praying with patients who have asked for a bedside visit on Sunday mornings (approximately 09.00 – 13.00).

And/or: collecting patients in wheelchairs (by request) so they can attend the 11.00 am Service in Chapel.  Volunteers usually commit to doing this on a regular Sunday (e.g. first) each month.
