Life can feel like an inferno sometimes. Domestic upheaval, illness, bereavement,
stress: these and other challenges are hard to handle, affecting not only ourselves
but our families, friends and colleagues too.
When problems and worries crowd in, just having someone to talk to can make all the
difference. The National Rail Chaplaincy Service is available to all rail staff members
(including those who are retired), their families and the travelling public. Our
Chaplains offer help and a listening ear to anyone who needs it and their contact
details are available on this site. When life turns up the heat, no matter what your
faith (or none) or lifestyle we are here for you.
The work of the Chaplains compliments that of the welfare services offered by employers.
Together we seek to ensure that all employees receive the pastoral care that they
need. The National Rail Chaplaincy Service is a 7-day a week, 24 hours a day service
- just like the railway industry itself.
