The Chaplaincy is for all faiths and none. Our team covers a wide variety of beliefs, including Humanism, Daoism, Paganism and all major world religions. You don't have to be religious or spiritual to attend events at the Chaplaincy or use our services. All are welcome.
As members of multiple faith and belief communities, we highly value the multicultural life of the UK, which has grown over many years into a rich, diverse and cultured neighbourliness. We all feel the better off for that, benefit from one another's wisdom and enjoy one another's culture. We would not wish to see our diverse and inclusive society unravel, or be undermined by uncertainties brought about by the Referendum vote for Britain to leave the EU.
We applaud the Commons vote of 6th July 2016 in support of EU migrants' right to remain in the UK. We are acutely aware of the anxiety affecting not only EU migrant workers but also their dependents in the UK. We urge that the rights and security of EU citizens currently living in the UK be assured so that these citizens are relieved of the prospect of displacement, family separation and loss of rights. We would expect the UK, as a principled nation, to give such assurance as a matter of moral and political principle.

Our multi-faith team of chaplains and belief contacts is available to offer sensitive, impartial support in any situation.
We offer personal support, religious support and spiritual support to staff and students of all faiths and none.
