Welcome to the Chaplaincy

Support and care, space and prayer in the heart of the Campus

The Chaplaincy is both a place and a team of people. We are here for people of all faiths or none - all students and staff, to offer counsel, advice or just a listening ear. Feel free to pop in any time. We are situated at the bottom of the steps to the right of the Library (the turquoise blue 2 on campus maps).  
Phone: 01225 386458 (Internal 6458)  
Duty Chaplain: 07966 341370  
During term time there is usually a chaplain available on week days between 10.00 am and at least 5.00 pm (6.15 pm on Tuesdays).

Thought for the week

"Prayer is reaching out after the unseen; fasting is letting go of all that is seen and temporal. Fasting helps express, deepen, confirm the resolution that we are ready to sacrifice anything, even ourselves to attain what we seek for the kingdom of God."

Andrew Murray
