About the Chaplaincy

We will never turn you away

The UK Oil and Gas Chaplaincy is an ecumenical chaplaincy, which acts on behalf of all the mainstream Christian Churches in bringing pastoral care and the comfort of God's word to the people of the UK Oil and Gas Industry in their workplaces and homes.

The Chaplaincy was founded in the late 1980s when its development was led by the first chaplain, the Reverend Andrew Wylie. The current chaplain, the Reverend Gordon Craig, is working to continue to consolidate the Chaplaincy as an integral part of the UK Oil and Gas Industry. A task made simpler in that there is not a corner of the far-flung oil and gas field where the names and work of Andrew and his successors, Angus Smith, Andrew Jolly and Martin Grashoff are not known.

"This is because the Chaplaincy is here for you and will never turn you away."

Is The Chaplaincy For Christians Only?

No, it is not. The Chaplaincy and its work are for everyone associated either directly or indirectly, past and present with the UK Oil and Gas Industry. It is for people of all faiths and of none.

The current Chaplain is a Minister of the Church of Scotland. However he ministers to individuals as men and women created in the image of God, rather than as adherents of a particular Christian denomination, or not, as the case may be.

Depending on what you want, he can provide help directly and personally or he can refer you immediately to a representative of another denomination or another faith or creed.
