Chaplains deliver spiritual, moral and pastoral leadership and support to the Brigade and Garrison community. Serving as uniformed members of the Armed Forces they have unique insights to military life that enables them to identify with the concerns of service personnel and sustain them as colleagues, pastors and priests.
The leadership of communities other than Christian remains the concern of all chaplains but specific faith support can be sought from the Faith Advisors whose contact details are given below.
The Garrison Church is a new, well-appointed and central place of worship and is open to members of all Christian denominations. The Church is part of the Welfare/Shopping and Recreation facilities in Homefield Road.
