Welcome to the Chaplaincy
God's creation reminding us of his presence here
Support and care, space and prayer in the heart of the Campus. All People, All Year, All Churches.
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.

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.
