Rev'd Barry Chapman

Anglican Chaplain

Barry Chapman joined the then young ‘Bath University of Technology’ in the late sixties of the last century and has watched it grow in size and prestige to become the world class university that it is today. He was a member of staff in the Physics department working mostly with x-ray diffraction and, latterly, also in optics.  
He was ordained in the early eighties to work as an unpaid minister in his local church in Bradford-on-Avon, and then at the suggestion of the Bishop of Bath and Wells was also licenced as a member of the University Chaplaincy Team. He has known and worked with all the previous University Chaplains and noticed the steady developing relevance of university chaplaincy in the context of higher education. He retired from Physics in 2007 but has continued as a chaplain, usually present on Campus on Wednesdays during term time.
