Welcome to Mission in the Economy
MitE is an ecumenical Christian charity which provides chaplaincy services to business public and voluntary communities around the North West.
Our chaplains come alongside people in their place of work, providing a friendly listening ear to people of all faiths and none.
As an independent presence in the workplace, MitE's chaplains are ideally placed to provide a confidential and safe space to enable those they meet to flourish in their work life, wellbeing and spirituality.
We are interested in the work lives of the people that we meet. Most people spend a large portion of their lives in a work environment and face all sorts of challenges, stresses and strains on a daily basis. Chaplains aspire to help people to be the best version of themselves that they can be in the workplace.
We also see challenging injustice in the workplace as an important part of the Chaplain's work.
We are interested in the wellbeing of the people we support because we value the whole person and recognise that human beings are more than just the function that they perform in the workplace. Good emotional health is important for everyone and chaplaincy as a friendly listening ear and, where appropriate, as a signpost to other more specialist support structures, helps people to deal more effectively with whatever life throws at them.
We are interested in the spirituality of the people we speak to because we recognise that spirituality, in its various forms, is a source of strength, inspiration and solace for many. As part of an ecumenical Christian organisation our chaplains draw on their own spiritual experience and traditions to provide support for people of all faiths and none. We do not proselytize or “convert” people but help them to understand and engage with their own spirituality.
