Welcome to ARCC

Australian Racing Christian Chaplaincy (ARCC) is an inter-church body that coordinates the provision of chaplains to the racing industry.

Chaplains offer a program of service to all people employed in racing, especially those who work in the stable area. The chaplaincy program helps identify and relieve the short and long-term physical, spiritual, emotional, and mental needs of this community in a holistic and non-judgemental way. 

Chaplaincy services are provided free of charge.

All funding for these services comes from our partners and donors, including:

  • Logo  Racing Nsw
  • Logo Atc
  • Logo Darby Racing
  • Logo Chris Waller
  • Logo Snowden Racing
  • Pamarma Paf
  • Logo  Coolmore
  • Blueblood Logo
  • Logo Dynamic Syndications
  • Logo Clarry Conners

If you need assistance, you can get in touch with one of our Chaplains by phone (02) 8090 0256 or email contact@arcc.org.au
