Meet our chaplains

Jesus calls us to ‘love your neighbour as yourself’ (Mark 12:31).

A key response to Jesus’ call is through the caring ministries of our chaplains.

Hospital chaplain 

Rev Jeremy Rice visits patients who are ill or dying in our hospitals. As they near the end of life, he reminds them of the hope of eternal life in heaven that is given to all who put their trust in Jesus. Many families have been blessed by Jeremy’s compassionate ministry.



There is a great need for rural chaplaincy in the Mid-west farming region of our diocese. This ministry is based in the small town of Northampton.

Eldred & Geraldine Royce, former farmers, are well suited for this ministry.  To maintain their vital work requires more supporters. 


Prison chaplain 

Rev Captain David Hilton visits Greenough Prison and brings the good news that forgiveness and the hope of a new life is available through Jesus Christ. David says he reminds prisoners that no one is beyond God’s forgiveness and love. He runs services, holds Bible studies, helps prisoners study online Bible courses, prays with prisoners and encourages them.
