Spiritual & Religious Care Program
Providing one-on-one spiritual and pastoral care for those seeking spiritual direction and/or desiring to know more about God, The Salvation Army is committed to proclaiming the gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ, to nurturing men and women in their faith, as they learn to live a life of committed discipleship to Jesus Christ. The Spiritual Care program is responsible for delivering Christian-based services, such as Bible study, prayer meetings, chapel services, and outreach at the Centre of Hope and around the greater Abbotsford community.
We value the dignity of those we serve as being created in the very image of God, the truth and the power of God’s Word, prayer, the work of the Holy Spirit and the Great Commission. Part of our mandate is to show the love of Jesus Christ through our interactions and relationship building. Everyone is welcome to sit with our Spiritual Care Coordinator (Chaplain) to have an open ended dialogue or time of prayer. This is not a counseling session but a time to feel safe, listened to and accepted. Our Spiritual Care Coordinator (Chaplain) can provide spiritual direction, prayer and care to any shelter guest, resident, volunteer/staff or community member that seeks their services. Chapel services on Sundays and Tuesdays start @8:30 am and are open to all.
