There are many chaplains working across the diocese in various settings.
Bishop Martyn recorded a video conversation with Noel Reyes from the Leicestershire Filipino Chaplaincy during the spring Corona virus lockdown, about his experiences working in a care home during lockdown and the work of his church and the Filipino Chaplaincy in Leicestershire in supporting each-other, carerers and the NHS here.
A national Church of England service was recently (October 2020) streamed online with the theme of Chaplaincy in Care Homes. You can watch it here.
