Supporting the airport community
The Chaplaincy Service exists to provide:
The multifaith Chaplaincy team: Captain Martyn Scrimshaw (Full time), Mary Holloway, Sharon Chowdary, Majors Graeme and Helen McClimont and Major Chris Black.
- Support to all airport staff, management, aircrew and the many organisations onsite by listening, visiting and providing emotional and spiritual support across all faiths and belief systems.
- A helpful resource to people facing special needs, stress or loss, including passengers.
- Chaplaincy support is provided in the event of a major airport incident.
The prayer rooms are open 24/7 and have been temporarily relocated in front of Terminal 3, whilst we upgrade the T2 Arrivals Hall. Please refer to below animation for wayfinding.
Prayer rooms are also located in T2 International Departures adjacent to Cafe Vue.
Martyn, the coordinating chaplain, comes with over fifteen years of experience within The Salvation Army as well as nearly ten years as a volunteer chaplain with Victoria Police. He passionately advocates for holistic care, seeking justice with regard to human rights and welfare. He is supported by a very experienced team skilled in personal and practical care.
Chaplaincy office is located on Level 2 in Terminal 2
