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 and no faith - all students and staff, to offer counsel, advice or just a listening ear. Feel free to pop in any time.

Thought for the week
May the God of Hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit
St Paul, an apostle: Romans 15: 13.
The Chaplaincy exists:
1) to serve the spiritual and religious needs of the University Community;
2) to provide pastoral care and friendship for all staff and students of the University;
3) to enhance the learning experience through exploration of faith, peace and justice.
