The Chapel of Christ the Healer
The Chapel is situated on the main street within the hospital. It is dedicated to Christ the Healer and is always open for prayer and is a place to find peace and quiet.
There is a 'prayer tree' situated in the Chapel on which you are invited to place a prayer request.
Referral forms are also available in the Chapel, which can be posted at the chaplaincy office, if you or someone you are visiting would like contact with the chaplaincy.
Prayer space/quiet space
The prayer space is adjacent to the Chapel. This can be used for prayer, quiet and reflection.
We have prayer mats and prayer books available for those of the Muslim, Sikh and Baha'i faiths. There is also a portable Hindu mandir.
Muslim Friday prayers are held at 1.30pm.
- Weekdays 8.30am - Morning Prayer
- Wednesdays 1.10pm - Holy Communion
- Sundays 11.00am - Holy Communion
All are welcome at every service.
Patients can be escorted to the chapel/prayer room/quiet space by members of the chaplaincy team, with ward staff permission.
Whilst in hospital, if you would like to receive Holy Communion on the wards, let the staff know and they will contact the chaplaincy team.
We always welcome referrals of anyone who would appreciate support during their time in hospital. To refer someone to the chaplaincy department, telephone the main office or if your call is urgent, contact the main switchboard on 01904 631313, they will contact the appropriate person. If your referral relates to a patient at York Hospital please ensure that you mention 'York Hospital.'
