Pastoral Care


Sea Cadets is open to all and embraces all faiths.  Working alongside young people and volunteers, our chaplains offer support to cadets and volunteers as they embrace new challenges. Throughout the Sea Cadets, chaplains appointed from clergy, lay readers and others with an authorised ministry work with units to provide moral and pastoral support.

My experience

Keith Stewart is the chaplain to Middleton and Chadderton Unit and was a volunteer at Manchester Unit for 22 years. “I enjoyed my time with the Sea Cadets,” he says, “but I felt I’d gone as far as I could and as well as being a Police Officer, I also decided to study to become a reader in the Church of England. Not long after I qualified, one of my colleagues suggested I think about rejoining Sea Cadets as a chaplain.”

Keith has a broad remit. “Generally, it’s the chaplain’s job to be available,” he explains, “mind you, thanks to my 20 plus years as a Sea Cadet volunteer I also help with  training, including Drill, map reading and First Aid. Although I’ve now retired from the police I find my 30 years’ service comes in very handy at times.”
