 Registration is closed for this event
October 27th, 2021 19:00   --   20:00

This is a hybrid event – taking place in-person and online. Please note: you will need an NHS Covid Pass to attend the event in-person.

Lindsay van Dijk was the first humanist to lead an NHS chaplaincy team when, in 2018, she was appointed as Lead Chaplain of Buckinghamshire Healthcare NHS Trust’s Chaplaincy and Pastoral Support. Earlier this year, she came to the Steel City, when Sheffield Teaching Hospitals appointed her Head of Chaplaincy. She became the most senior humanist pastoral carer to take up a role within the NHS.

Lindsay will tell us about how she ended up at Sheffield Teaching Hospitals, and what work she's been doing in her new role at the trust.

Lindsay will be speaking to us remotely, but attendees are invited to meet at Showroom Cinema to hear her speak. If however, you can't make it, you will be able to join in via Google Meet.

19:00–19:40 – Lindsay's talk
19:40–20:00 – Q&A
20:00 onwards – Drinks (in-person only)
