Spiritual Care Series Launch
Following on from our successful Volunteer Pastoral Care Program, established in early 2015, we were invited by the Health Television Network (HTN) to assist with developing new written training materials for the volunteer training course ‘Spiritual Care is Everybody’s Business’.
The new eight-part Spiritual Care Series was launched on Wednesday 28 June 2017 by the Aged Care Channel (ACC) and HTN, with the support of Meaningful Ageing Australia and BaptistCare.
Streamed live from the ACC studio, the series launch featured a discussion panel of experts in the field of aged and spiritual care, including BaptistCare’s Ross Wakeley, Church Engagement and Volunteer Consultant, Isla Hampton, CEO of Meaningful Ageing Australia, and host Leigh Hatcher, veteran Australian broadcast journalist and author.
Working with the Association of Baptist Churches of NSW & ACT, we’ve ensured that all Baptist churches in NSW and the ACT can also access the Spiritual Care series so they may train up suitable people as pastoral carers. For details, visit baptistcare.org.au/vpcv.
