Housed in the converted old stable block of Amport House, the Museum of Army Chaplaincy tells the story of Army Chaplaincy from earliest times to the present day with the help of archive material and historical relics from several centuries.

The Museum of Army Chaplaincy houses the archives and historical relics of RAChD and it’s chaplains, and unlike most military museums does not include any weapons or ammunition, since the chaplains are non-combatant and their work is to sustain not destroy.

The Museum displays cover six themes: Faith in Captivity; Celebrating the Faith; Faith in service of Peace; Faith under Fire; Faith in Uniform and Teaching the Faith. Displays include poignant Far East POW items, Church silver and furnishings, uniforms and the stories of the four chaplains who have been awarded the Victoria Cross.
