Chaplains and staff at the Multi-Faith Chaplaincy

The Chaplaincy has a number of full-time and part-time chaplains who have information about religious activities both at the University and beyond. They are prepared to talk things over in a relaxed atmosphere and extend a warm welcome to all regardless of religious belief or background.

To avoid disappointment, it is always advisable to make an appointment.
