More Details:

The  Disaster  Recovery  Chaplaincy  Network  (DRCN).  The DRCN is an ecumenical and multi-­faith  network of disaster-­recovery trained clergy and ministry agents that has been responding to disasters and emergencies across NSW since 2011.

This  Network  is  incorporated  in  the  NSW  Disaster Welfare arrangements of the Emergency Management Plan (EMPLAN) to provide pastoral support in evacuation and recovery centres, and into communities, following disasters and emergency events.  A part of the charter of the DRCN is to support local ministry agents in the process of recovery following disasters.

A  two-­day  intensive  disaster  recovery  chaplaincy  training  course  will  be  held  in  East Maitland on August 25-­‐26  for ministry agents interested in applying to be a part of this network.

Who may apply?

DRCN chaplains are ministry agents from a range of faith organisations who are ordained or equivalent, or are employed in institutional chaplaincy (eg. Hospital, Gaol, Aged Care) and who have the support of their denominational body for involvement.

The  cost  of  training  (travel  and  accommodation  if  necessary)  is  covered  by  a  joint Federal/State government grant.

For more information or to apply, please email DRCN@nat.uca.org.au  or contact Rev. Dr. Stephen Robinson on 0412 820 848
