CHISEL stands for Chaplaincy to Industry in South East Lincolnshire and is a network of volunteer chaplains.

For instance, a police chaplaincy is being established at Boston Police Station and it is hoped a team of lay volunteer chaplains will be placed in other stations to support staff.

It is something that is also happening at Boston College and at a number of large organisations in the county.

Industrial chaplain William Ruddle describes chaplaincy as “drawing alongside people of all faiths and none and supporting them in times of need”.

He said: “One of the most exciting aspects of this job is it’s a blank sheet of paper... but one of the most challenging is it’s a blank piece of paper.

“I am looking to train volunteer chaplains who can be supported in their work environs to offer chaplaincy support. If people are interested I’d love them to get in contact.”
