How can we help
The chaplaincy is here to support you in all sorts of ways, including:
- a welcoming face and helping hand if you're having problems settling into university life, or at any time during the year
- a team of chaplains and faith advisors who provide help and advice on all faith-related matters, as well as many other areas
- support through a bereavement or other tragedy
- lectures and conferences considering ethical and academic issues
- a regular mailing to keep you up to date with chaplaincy events - email firstname.lastname@example.org if you'd like to receive it.
