 Location of  Chapel

 The chapel is located on the ground floor of the hospital beside the Children’s Unit. It is a quiet peaceful setting overlooking Mount Ngongotaha.  The chapel is open during the day, and after hours, it can be opened by contacting the switchboard. The chapel is frequently used by people coming in to pray or simply to sit in quiet reflection.
There is a book for people to write prayers in if they desire, and the chaplain offers these prayers to God during the Sunday morning chapel service.
