Spiritual Care & Chaplaincy

The Spiritual Care/Chaplaincy Team at Northern Ireland Hospice is here to listen, encourage, and accompany you with patience and compassion whenever you need support.

Spiritual Care

The Northern Ireland Hospice Spiritual Care/Chaplaincy team deliver holistic and spiritual care.


How we can help

The Hospice chaplains are available to patients and families of any or no faith. Our support to you is based on respecting your beliefs and how you find yourself in the midst of your illness.

We recognise we all have common aspects in life that become more important when we are ill - relationships, activities and the things that bring meaning and purpose to our daily lives, trying to make sense out of what is happening to us, facing the unknown and perhaps even wondering where God is in the midst of everything. These are all aspects of our ‘spirituality’.

We can spend time with you, listen to your story and explore with you any issues that may be troubling you within the context of your belief system.

We also have designated Roman Catholic, Church of Ireland, Presbyterian and Methodist chaplains.

Hospice Sanctuary

The Hospice Sanctuary is available for you and your family at any time. It can be used to carry out your religious practice or as a place for reflection and tranquillity. If you wish to use the Sanctuary for a specific reason please let us know so it can be arranged. Feel free to write in the ‘Book for Thoughts and Prayers’ and to take some of the literature on display. If you need to speak to a chaplain at any time please ask a member of the Hospice team who will contact us.

Support when you leave Hospice

The chaplains can offer you support after you leave Hospice through day hospice or home visits.
