Spiritual Care

Chaplaincy Services/Pastoral Care
A stay in Hospital often brings changes to your life and the lives of your loved ones.  Chaplaincy and Pastoral Care is committed to support, care and compassion for you and those around you. Our goal is to care just as Jesus did.
Our Pastoral Care team consists of representatives from various religious groups from around Toowoomba.  Pastoral Care workers visit patients and/or their families who are in need of assistance, help, support, Bible reading or Prayer.  The Pastoral Care team is dedicated to providing spiritual and emotional support all, regardless of their beliefs.
We are available 24/7:
To support all patients, visitors, staff and volunteers
  • To listen with compassion to the things which are important to you
  • To offer Bible readings and Prays
  • To offer grief, crisis, and bereavement support
  • To assist in contacting representatives from your Faith Group
Hospital Chapel:
Our Chapel is open 24 hours for prayer, reflection, meditation and spiritual comfort.  It’s located just down the hall from the main entrance. Prayer requests left in the box inside the Chapel will be used in our regular prayer time.
Chapel Services:
The Chapel channel on your TV is AV6.  Regular services are being planned.  Easter, ANZAC, and Christmas Services are held in the Chapel.
If you would like to see a member of the Chaplaincy and Pastoral Care team or a Minister of your faith please let your nurse know or contact the hospital reception on (07) 4646 3000.
Whilst St Andrew’s Toowoomba Hospital has an appointed Chaplain, all religious denominations provide a visitation service comprising Ministers of Religion and Pastoral Care Workers.
