Work place chaplains commissioned in Pershore6 Feb 2019 By Sam Setchell
The Work Place Chaplains' Commissioning Service was held at Pershore Baptist Church on 20 January.
Each year, Churches Together in Pershore, an ecumenical group including Pershore Abbey, Pershore Baptist Church, Pershore Roman Catholic Church and Pershore Community Church, come together for an annual service of Christian Unity.
This year's service in January also saw the commissioning of a new team of work place chaplains, who will serve the town centre of Pershore, including the various shops and the market, as well as other central businesses.
The chaplains are drawn from across the denominations of churches and will regularly visit businesses to offer support, encouragement and to be there for those who wish to have a confidential ear to listen to their concerns, which could be personal, family or work related. The team have completed full training and undertake chaplaincy under the guidance of the charity, Faith at Work in Worcestershire.
In the service held at Pershore Baptist Church, prayers were said for the new Team as they serve the welfare of those working in the many businesses in the town centre.
