Chaplaincy Team

Spiritual support is available to students and staff of all faiths and none through the Chaplaincy Team.

What Chaplaincy is about

Training and education is not just about learning facts or getting more skilful.   It’s to do with how we function as fully mature people. This is often reflected in course requirements: ‘treating other people’s attitudes with respect’, ‘being able to work within a team’, ‘being able to organise own work’ etc. These kinds of qualities are not easy to assess but the emphasis is on the whole person.

Chaplaincy is also interested in the whole person. If you have a spiritual or faith need we’re happy to talk with you. You do not have to belong to a particular faith group.  In fact over the years, a large number of people with all sorts of attitudes and opinions have found it helpful to talk to us.

Part of the chaplain’s role is also to encourage everyone to fulfil their true potential. Another very important role of the chaplain is to offer pastoral help for whoever needs it.

We are there in a confidential and professional capacity to listen to your concerns if you wish to talk to us. The Chaplaincy is multi-faith and ecumenical and provides an informal ‘back-up’ to the more formal services offered by Student Services.
