See footnote[2]

Training

RAF chaplains and candidates receive training at the Armed Forces Chaplaincy Centre, which is located at Amport House.[3]

Endorsing authorities

To serve in the Chaplains Branch, chaplains and candidates must be endorsed by a religious body.[4] RAF Commissioned Chaplains are accepted from the various Christian denominations. The British military forces are also served by "tri-service chaplains" from other world faiths, including Buddhist, Hindu, Muslim, and Sikh.[5]

Noncombatant status

See: Military chaplain#Non-combatant status

Chaplain-in-Chief

Note: The RAF Chaplains Branch is led by a Chaplain-in-Chief.[6]
Viener was the first Chaplain-in-Chief; when the Chaplain-in-Chief is an Anglican, he or she is also the Archdeacon for the Royal Air Force – otherwise, the most senior Anglican chaplain takes that title along with that of Principal Anglican Chaplain.

Central church

The central church of the Chaplains Branch is St Clement Danes Church.[26][27]
