Volunteering at the Good Shepherd Chapel

The Good Shepherd Chapel at the Abbottsford Convent precinct in Melbourne relies on the support of volunteers to show visitors around, explain the history of the Chapel and for general housekeeping tasks.

Volunteering at the Chapel is a great way to meet visitors from around the world and get involved with the local community.

If you can commit four hours a week as a Chapel volunteer, we will provide training and ongoing support. For more information about volunteering at the Chapel please call 03 9417 2909 or email chapel@goodshep.org.au
