Multi-faith Centre

PCH's Multi-faith Centre on Level 5 provides a calm and welcoming space for time-out, prayer, meditation, quiet reflection and counselling for people of all faiths, spiritual backgrounds and those of no religion.

The Multi-faith Centre has a collection of sacred texts and symbols from of a number of faith traditions.

Within the Multi-faith Centre is a book in which patients, staff and families can write prayers or messages. These prayers are remembered and honoured by the Chaplains.

A Salat Room (prayer room) provides opportunity to meet the daily worship needs of people of the Islamic tradition. Washing/ Wudu facilities are available with separate male and female prayer areas.

The adjoining courtyard is a serene area available to all visitors as a place for relaxation, contemplation and reflection.

Support

Chaplains are available to provide pastoral and spiritual care for staff, families and carers from all religious and non-religious backgrounds.

They can also address religious and spiritual questions and concerns that may arise during hospitalisation.
