The Carlington Community Chaplaincy is a ministry of presence fostering a safe, supportive and empowering environment for everyone in our diverse community. We honour and value all people.

We provide a range of hospitality and arts-based programs for residents in Carlington, including a daily drop-in (Monday - Friday, 10 am - 12 pm), a studio space for artists, and special-interest classes and groups.
