What is the Chaplaincy?

The Chaplaincy is based around the work of our chaplains - a friendly group of men and women drawn from local churches who offer support to students and staff, whatever their religious beliefs.

 

       "The chaplaincy is a warm, friendly environment - an oasis of calm in the centre of campus. There are many opportunities to meet with people from a wide variety of backgrounds or to find a quiet place to meditate and chill out".

(Lee, University Staff)

We aim to

  • be a reflective, praying, God-centred faith community, respectful of and enriched by our distinct traditions

  • resource a space in which students and staff are accepted, nutured, and can find confidence, healing and spiritual growth

  • be a Christian witness affirming all that is good, promoting justice and peace, and respect and care for God's Creation

  • facilitate dialogue between people of all faiths and viewpoints in an environment of trust
