Spiritual and emotional support

“We will always be open to your needs and wishes; it’s about listening and being responsive”

Here at St Christopher’s, we encourage you to feel free to express your spirituality or practise your religion in whatever way is right for you; everyone is welcome.

We understand you may have worries, concerns or questions, perhaps about your illness or your hopes and fears for yourself and your family and friends. If this sounds like you, our Spiritual Care Team is here for you to talk to. We also have a full-time Chaplain who works closely with clergy and faith leaders from across the local community who are here to support you and your family.

Our priority is to keep you safe during the pandemic, and so we are offering our services over the phone if you’re at home, as well as face-to-face on our wards if you’re staying at the hospice.


We are pleased to announce the return of our twice-weekly services in the Pilgrim Room, beginning Tuesday 14 September. 

Services will start at 1.30pm every Tuesday and Friday, and last approximately 30 minutes. Anybody is welcome to attend, whether you’re an outpatient or inpatient, and we will be following the latest COVID-19 guidelines to ensure attendees safety. We ask that you wear a face covering throughout the service and wash/sanitise your hands before and after entering the Pilgrim Room, and where necessary we will also be implementing any additional health and safety measures deemed appropriate. 

If you would like to attend a service, please inform Andrew Goodhead or a relevant member of the Nursing team in advance, and if you are coming in to the hospice from the community, please ensure you arrange your own transport here and back home again.

We look forward to seeing you there.
