Quaker chaplains and prison visitors
Chaplaincy can be an opportunity for outreach. Friends’ non-credal approach and openness to new light, from whatever quarter, may be particularly appealing to the enquiring mind. Friends should be ready to make Quaker views known as well as providing pastoral care. There may be opportunities for holding a meeting for worship as part of chaplaincy work; local elders should share in responsibility for such a meeting.
Some places may have several Friends responsible for pastoral care associated with chaplaincy; local meetings should have an overall responsibility to support all these Friends both practically and spiritually.
