Chaplaincy

The Chaplaincy serves the University community by offering pastoral counselling, and support and guidance in matters of faith and spiritual development for all students and staff of the Christian, Jewish and Muslim traditions, and also those with no religious background.

The Senior Chaplains will be happy to take your initial enquiries and refer you to a specific College Chaplain should that be appropriate.

Chaplaincy Activities

Chaplaincy activities include: 

  • regular open meetings
  • lectures
  • workshops
  • weekends away
  • seminars and discussion groups to attempt to foster dialogue and encourage tolerance and respect between all people of faith.

These activities also help develop a sense of belonging and community, a service that is valued by students challenged by the anonymity and scale of life in London.

There is a daily framework of prayer and silence, and weekly celebrations of the Eucharist, details of which can be obtained from the Chaplains. 

Ecumenical Arrangements

The Chaplains coordinate the ecumenical arrangements for occasions when the University community wishes to mark some special event, for example Remembrance Day, Christmas carol services, memorial services to honour University members who have died, or the annual service of thanksgiving for those who have donated their bodies for medical research. 

The Chaplains

If you have something in particular on your mind, the Chaplains are available for the opportunity to talk in confidence. Please do not hesitate to phone or call in, so we can find time to talk.

The Chaplains can also provide information about the Islamic, Buddhist and other faith communities.

Most individual College Chaplaincy centres have an ‘open door’ policy and try to be as accessible as possible.
