André Groenewald, (minister of Balerno Parish church) serves as the Chaplain to Currie Chieftains as a member of Sports Chaplaincy UK. The aim of Sports Chaplaincy is to serve and help people in a non-intrusive way, in a sports setting. For me it is all about being a presence, standing on the side lines, waiting and ready to help anyone who may need a guiding hand.
To me it is about:
The Mental health and wellbeing of any player or volunteer or member of Currie Chieftains is of the utmost importance to me. My goal is to be known and trusted by all so that everyone can feel at ease to contact me in times of joy and times of sadness. My strategy on how to achieve this, is simply to attend rugby matches, rugby lunches and after practise-meals.
If you need to talk or share something with me, please feel welcome to contact me anytime.
