Find out about your Railway chaplains

We are committed to providing the highest quality service and will do whatever it takes to ensure that you are supported when you need it.

Knowing a bit about who we are and what motivates us to support the railway staff as professional chaplains can help you appreciate and respect our work. It can also help you understand how they can be a source of comfort, hope, and guidance for those who need it. They can be contacted by phone or email, or through our 'Find a Chaplain' page of this website. We use British Transport Police stations as a reference point for their locations and are always ready to offer a friendly and supportive presence to anyone who works on or travels by the railways.

Over the coming months, we will spotlight our team members in this blog. Come back and visit this page to read about our team as we highlight each of them.
