The Prayer Corner in the Chapel
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).

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."
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
