    The Greater Alton Project – Anglicans and Methodists journeying together (GAP) – invites applications for the part-time post of Anna Chaplain to Older People.

    • Salary: In the range £12 - £15 per hour (@ 20 hours per week = £12,480 - £15,600 annual)
    • Holiday: 20 days per annum pro rata plus bank holidays (80 hours plus bank holidays)

    The Anna Chaplaincy is an ecumenical post promoting the spiritual and emotional welfare of older people, including those living in residential care homes and sheltered housing complexes, and offering support to their relatives and carers.

    The increasing development of housing for older people in the Alton area, and the success of previous post-holders in developing strong links within the community, has led to a realisation of the need to train and enable volunteers to support this work. The successful applicant will therefore be able to build, lead and develop a team of volunteers to support them in this ministry.

    The successful applicant would become part of a growing national network of such Anna chaplains within Bible Reading Fellowship, who can provide training. Enhanced DBS and references will be required. Full COVID 19 vaccination status will be required (Recent legislation requires it in all CQC Care Homes).

    For an application pack please contact Mrs Liz George by email or 01420 561543.
