The National Rail Chaplaincy Service is provided by Chaplains from the Railway Mission and London City Mission working together to provide coverage for the Rail Network in England, Scotland and Wales. We cover the Rail Network, London Underground, Metro Systems and many preserved lines.

We visit staff in the workplace across the industry, taking in Headquarters, Offices, Stations, Depots, Yards and Trains. If your location hasn’t had a visit recently, please contact us and we will come along and explain our service to you and your colleagues.

Many of the Chaplains have been provided with offices at major Stations or in adjacent office complexes but spend a lot of time out and about. All, however, are contactable by mobile phone or email and will get back to you if you leave a message.

Under the ‘Our Chaplains’ menu you will find information on which Chaplain covers your area together with contact details.

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.
