Our facilities are available to Churches, Charities and Community groups at discounted rates: please contact us with details of your requirements and we’ll try to help.

Chaplaincy Service

Revd. William Mackay is the appointed Chaplain to the AFD Group – and is also available to everyone in the Mountain View Community. This provides additional support for staff welfare: William can provide a confidential listening ear if at any time you or your family feels the need for someone to lean on.

William began his career in Thomas Cook Travel before moving into full time Christian work 25 years ago. Initially a Methodist Minister, he was in charge of a number of churches, and also fulfilled roles as Hospital Chaplain, Chaplain to parts of the British Army in Northern Ireland, and also acted as Chaplain to a Football Club. William has recently retired as the Anglican Minister from St Patrick’s Church, Jurby, here on the island.

William will be visiting us at Mountain View over lunchtimes twice a month, when he will be available for informal chats – or a private conversation. He can also be contacted outside these organised visits, and to maintain confidentiality has a private email address at [email protected].

Email is the preferred method of contact but he can also be contacted (in emergency only please!) on mobile phone number 07624 411318.
