Wellington: Sports Chaplaincy orientation meeting
7 August 2017 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pmFree
Sports Chaplaincy orientation and information evening
Sports Chaplaincy orientation will introduce you to this exciting, developing ministry, which provides a way for people to connect their faith with their love for sport and people. Our sports communities, both professional and amateur, need people willing to engage with and care for them. We especially have opportunities available for women in the Wellington region.
In this meeting you will learn more about the Sports Chaplaincy scene, and the upcoming Wellington training weekends. During the evening there will be time to discuss and ask questions.
The evening is hosted by Ignite Sport.
This is an information-only meeting covering the basics of Sports Chaplaincy. You and your friends are welcome to come along and learn whether Sports Chaplaincy is for you, with no obligation.

Sports Chaplaincy Training(Phase 1&2)
Following Sports Chaplaincy orientation, we will offer Four Phase Sports Chaplaincy Certificate Training in the Wellington region.
This runs over four days (two weekends), and each day covers one phase of the training.
Phase 1 explores the Biblical basis and critical elements of Sports Chaplaincy, while Phase 2 emphasises pastoral care. Phase 3 centres on mentoring and includes a visit to a sports organisation. Phase 4 gives practical guidance on subjects such as family life; suicide awareness; and grief, loss and transitions.
The training is interactive and draws out the existing knowledge and experience of participants. Each session concludes with a ‘Learning Capture’, in which participants have time to reflect upon their learning.
Phase 1 and 2 training: 26,27 August 2017 at Ignite Sport, Petone. Find out more.
Phase 3 and 4 training: October/November 2017 (actual dates to be confirmed).
Upon completion of all four phases, you may apply to become an accredited Sports Chaplain.
