Pastoral Support and Advice
No matter who you are, where you come from, or what you believe, the Chaplaincy is here for you. Whatever your faith – or even if you have no faith at all – if you need to talk we’re ready to listen to your concerns and answer your questions.
The Chaplaincy is served by a team of practising Christians who hold regular services in the Chapel and make visits to other campuses, supporting all our students and staff. We’re supported by the University’s Inter Faith Council and maintaining the Buddhist meditation rooms, quiet spaces and Muslim prayer rooms.
Confidential Listening Service
The Chaplaincy offers a safe space where any student can bring and discuss their problems in a non-judgmental environment. You set the agenda, and can talk about everything and anything that might be on your mind; from issues with classmates, tutors or colleagues to relationships, family matters, financial concerns, bullying, essay deadlines or work-related stress.
We’re here to listen and bounce ideas around with you, and to help you work things out for yourself.
As Chaplains, we work closely with students and staff across the University, and it is this close working relationship that enables us to offer suggestions and walk alongside people as they deal with their issues. As practising people of faith we strive to always do that which is in your best interest.
Never feel that your problem is too small or too large, or that you are alone in dealing it. The University Chaplaincy is there to support you, so please get in touch if you need us.
To find out more about the pastoral support and advice services we offer please email us, visit us at the Chaplaincy Centre or call us on 01227 922538.
The Chaplaincy Centre, Canterbury
The Chaplaincy Centre provides a place for everyone to find sanctuary and peace, and a place to meet and relax. Inside there is a Common Room (including library and tea and coffee making facilities), a small meditation room set aside for prayer and reflection, and the Chaplaincy team’s offices.
Outside the Centre, on one side is a relaxing rose garden and on the other side are the allotments.
Everyone is welcome and we look forward to seeing you!
The Centre is open regularly from about 9.30am – 5.00pm weekdays and people are free to come and go as they wish. It is close to Gate 5 on the NHR campus.
