WM FE Chaplaincy Ambassador Nigel Roberts was recently invited to take part in the BU’s regular podcast series ‘Joining the Dots’ – about the churches’ work with children, young people and families. The conversation was wide-ranging, but those particularly interested in FE specifically can start listening from approx. 13:30 into the recording. Nigel has been invited back for a second podcast to discuss the theology of chaplaincy – watch this space!
