As a multi-faith, non-denominational charity, we embrace all faiths and seek to work alongside young people and adults. In doing so our chaplaincy aims to spread the Corps values and support cadets and adults as they embrace new challenges. Throughout the Sea Cadets, chaplains appointed from clergy, lay readers and others with an authorised ministry work with each Unit to provide moral, spiritual and pastoral guidance

Chaplains serve all faith communities and work alongside young people and adults to provide guidance and leadership in spiritual, moral and community matters.
