Mission

The Mission of the Royal Air Force Chaplains Branch is to serve the RAF Community through: Prayer, Presence and Proclamation.[2] The motto of the branch Ministrare Non Ministrari translates as ..To serve, not to be served and is derived from Mark chapter 10: verse 45.[3]

History

The Reverend Harry Viener was invested as the first Chaplain-in-Chief on 11 October 1918[4] with the Chaplaincy branch officially established in December 1918.[5] Reverend Viener had been a Naval Chaplain and was 'lent' to the Air Force by the Admiralty.[6] A Chaplaincy school was established at Magdalene College, Cambridge University in November 1943 with the motto of 'Truth'.[7] The Chaplaincy School was moved to Dowdeswell Court in Gloucestershire in February 1945. Thereafter it moved to Amport House in Hampshire in December 1961.[8]

Training

RAF chaplains and candidates receive training at the Armed Forces Chaplaincy Centre, which is located at Amport House.[9]

Endorsing authorities

To serve in the Chaplains Branch, chaplains and candidates must be endorsed by a religious body.[10] RAF commissioned chaplains are accepted from the various Christian denominations. The British military forces are also served by "tri-service chaplains" from other world faiths, including Buddhist, Hindu, Muslim, and Sikh.[11] The RAF also has an honorary Jewish chaplain, Rabbi Malcolm Weisman, who holds the position of Senior Jewish Chaplain to HM Forces.[12][13] In 2018, the first Sikh and Muslim military chaplains to join the British armed forces passed out from the Royal Air Force College Cranwell to join the RAF Chaplain's Branch.[14]

Noncombatant status

Chaplain-in-Chief

The RAF Chaplains Branch is led by a Chaplain-in-Chief.[15] Harry Viener was the first Chaplain-in-Chief. When the Chaplain-in-Chief is an Anglican, he or she is also the Archdeacon for the Royal Air Force – otherwise, the most senior Anglican chaplain takes that title along with that of Principal Anglican Chaplain.
