The chaplaincy offers an “all souls” ministry. This means that chaplains will speak to people of all faiths and none. They are available to offer advice, direction and counsel. This advice is offered unconditionally and in confidence.
The Garrison Church of All Saints’ is situated in Blandford Camp Centre. It is open during working hours for quiet reflection and prayer. The building is unique in its style arising from the 1960’s experimental period of architecture.The windows feature etchings representing the four gospel writers, the archangel Michael, St. George and the LivingChrist in Glory. The royal cypher of the original Princess Royal (Princess Mary) and the cap badge of the Royal Corpsof Signals are also represented.It was adopted on 19th June 2010 as the Corps Chapel of the Royal Signals. The Millennium Suite of oak panels and sanctuary furniture was gifted in the year 2000 to celebrate the 2000th year since the birth of Christ. The church holds the memorial books containing the names of members of the Corps who lost their lives in the service of their country alongside the Corps badge and flags.
