The University Chaplain

The University Chaplain is available to meet with students and staff at all our campuses. The Chaplain can offer pastoral care conversations and spiritual direction for people of all faiths or none. To make an appointment, please contact us.

Pastoral care

Pastoral Care conversations are available to help reflect on issues of daily living such as adapting to university life, decision making, bereavement, and during moments of crisis.

Spiritual direction

Spiritual direction is the opportunity to be regularly accompanied by a guide in an individually tailored and deep focus on the spiritual life through one’s own experience and life journey. In a profound relationship of respectful listening, spiritual direction seeks to further spiritual growth and personal development through the creative imagination and other techniques appropriate to the individual.

Faith and Spirituality Team
