An Emergency Services Chaplain is responsible for the Pastoral Care of the Personel and their families of the various disciplines of the Emergency Services.
We also give Pastoral Support to victims of Trauma and their families where the Emergency Services are involved,
and have requested our assistance.
We are not trauma councellors for the general public who have or are involved in trauma.
Why do we need Chaplains?
To be a listening ear, a sensitive pastoral counselor, and a friend in times of need!
We are not psychologists, psychiatrists or therapists (although some of our members might be) - most of our Chaplains are only there to assist during your time of pain and loss.
ESCSA Chaplain's dedicate their time to serving God, and support themselves financially.
The ESCSA does not "employ" Chaplains, so should you be considering joining the ESCSA - please take not that you will not receive any remuneration for your services.
