The Interchurch Council for Hospital Chaplaincy (ICHC)

Hospital Chaplaincy Week 22-29 September 2013

Your support makes our support possible   |   ICHC website

ICHC contracts with the Ministry of Health to provide chaplaincy services on behalf of the national bodies of the following Churches:

  • Anglican,
  • Apostolic,
  • Christian Churches NZ,
  • Baptist,
  • Congregational,
  • Methodist,
  • Presbyterian,
  • Roman Catholic,
  • and Salvation Army.

This service continues through the prayers, concern and financial help of a large number of people including commercial firms, other charitable trusts and spiritual organisations.

The contracts ensure the professional competency and accountability of the services. Funding comes from the Ministry of Health, church giving and donations from local people.

In Wellington the Hospital Chaplaincy Trust was established to make up the significant shortfall from these sources to ensure the sustainability of chaplaincy at Wellington Hospital.
