Capturing the spiritual values of CPFT

Church leaders and voluntary groups meet with Chief Executive as part of planned spiritual strategy

Capturing the spiritual values of CPFT
09 December 2013

Church leaders, volunteers and representatives from third sector organisations have met to discuss CPFT’s planned spirituality strategy.

The meeting was led by the Trust’s senior chaplain John Nicholson and was also attended by Chief Executive Aidan Thomas.

Speaking at the meeting at King’s Church in Cambridge, John said: “We are attempting to form a spiritual care forum and we’re capturing the passion that people have for being involved with, and helping those, with mental health challenges.

“There’s a lot of good stuff happening in Cambridge. I wanted to gather a group of people who are involved, who have a heart, and a passion for this stuff, just to capture some of the values that make it happen.

“If we are clear about those values, then we can do more of the same work – not just in Cambridge but in other areas too.

“It reminds us a Trust at all times that we have to be values based and work in a way that is human.”

The CPFT spiritual strategy is due to be published in early spring. For more information contact John Nicholson via
