Being in hospital can be a life-changing experience, perhaps in unexpected ways. Our chaplaincy is here to offer support to anyone who would find it helpful at the Liverpool Women’s Foundation Trust. We enjoy meeting people of different cultures and backgrounds, people of different faiths or none and we hope our multi faith team reflects this.
What Do We Offer?
Chaplains of all faiths and volunteers regularly visit the wards to chat to patients. Chaplaincy volunteers wear turquoise shirts so that they are easily identified. We offer informal support as well as Holy Communion and prayer. If you would like a visit from a chaplain of any denomination or faith, please ask a member of staff to contact us. During times of greater need for support, we can provide an on-call chaplaincy service, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. A member of staff will be more than happy to request this for you.
Chapel and Prayer room
There is a Chapel and prayer room located near to main reception (next to the prayer tree). It is open 24 hours a day and is a quiet space for all those who need to be still for a while. You may also want to light a candle, write a prayer in the book or hang a prayer on the tree. All prayer requests are remembered in the regular prayers of the chaplain. Within the Chapel and prayer room there is a prayer space for those of the Islamic faith.
There are occasional Roman Catholic and Church of England services throughout the year. Please see the notices near the chapel/prayer room.
Links with Local Church Communities and Faith Groups
We enjoy good relationships with local churches and other faith communities. If you would like a church or local faith representative to be contacted on your behalf, please let a member of staff or the Trust Chaplain know. We will not contact anyone without your permission.
