We Are A Non-Denominational Christian Charity Organisation That Visit, Pray Where Needed And Support The Sick Or Infirm In Hospitals And In Their Homes.
Christ Hospital Ministry (CHM) is a non-denominational Christian UK registered charity. Our work involves serving some of the most vulnerable groups in our society i.e. those suffering from long term illness. We provide support by visiting, encouraging, counselling, pastoral care and prayer (where requested). Other services we provide include practical help for young people with mental health challenges and rehabilitation after hospital discharge.
Our work is governed by our principles set out below:
Our work is purely voluntary and free at the point of delivery. Our motivation is the inspiration of God through the power of the Holy Spirit. Therefor our volunteers do not seek to receive any kind of personal reward from carrying out this voluntary charitable work.
Our volunteers carry out visits in hospitals, hospices, care homes and in private homes. Our strength lies mainly in the diverse skills our volunteers possess and these ranges from the medical profession, nursing, food technology, social services to IT, accountancy and finance. We provide community services by organising health awareness seminars which have positively impacted the local community.
Our services provide benefit to the community regardless of race, gender, culture, class or creed.

We value the contributions made by our volunteers and make every effort to ensure that they are well equipped for their role before they engage with clients. We actively encourage volunteers to use their skills and experiences in all relevant areas of our work.
