Urban and Industrial Chaplains

Industrial Chaplains

The Diocese has two Industrial Chaplains - at BAE Systems, Barrow and at Sellafield;  they work ecumenically and are part of the Cumbria Industrial Mission network, which comes under the umbrella of the (ecumenical) Social Responsibility Forum.

CIM is chaired by the Ven Richard Pratt, and meets a couple of times a year.  Notes of its meetings can be downloaded below:
