Explore your Faith

The Chaplaincy team are here to be:

  • A friendly, informal, confidential, and independent listening ear for staff and students alike
  • A resource for religious, spiritual, and ethical exploration
  • Support for students and student societies, a source of information about local places of worship and faith communities
  • An encourager of creative links between the University and the wider community.
  • Above all, the Chaplaincy team share with others in the University the concern that this should be a community that values the worth and dignity of each individual, and seeks to offer justice and fairness to all.
