Chaplain’s events

Chaplain’s Events

Each term there are two events: normally there is a social meal before Compline in week 2 and later in the term either a social meal or a guest speaker and a meal. All events are relaxed and informal. The aim is twofold: for students to come together and for those curious about the Christian faith to come along to a one off event and get to know some of the other Christians in college. If you would like to come to the events, it helps if you let the Chaplain know in advance so there is enough food. However you can also just turn up and hopefully you won’t t go hungry. These events provide a good way for postgraduates and undergraduates to meet each other.

For those interested in finding out more about the Christian faith or in thinking through their own faith issues, do contact the Chaplain. She is very happy to talk with anyone and, if appropriate put you in touch with people who might be able to help answer specific questions about the faith. From time to time there are small informal groups preparing students for Christian baptism and confirmation.   

The Chaplain has contacts through the University Chaplaincies with different faith chaplaincy groups (There are chaplains for many faith groups and the Chaplain can put you in touch easily) so if you would like to find out about different chaplaincy groups, do contact her.  In particular members of non-Christian faiths are very welcome to introduce themselves to the chaplain and to attend any of the chaplain’s events such as weekly tea and cake!

College members, alumni and staff and their families are welcome to direct enquiries about baptisms, confirmations, weddings and funerals to the Chaplain. Due to ongoing building works in the college we are currently unable to take bookings for weddings.

Tea and cake on Thursdays in Full term in the Chaplain’s office Besse 5 from 3-4.30pm

Everyone is welcome to come along. We make tea (and coffee) and chat – all sorts of people come, not just the religious ones! It is primarily an open and friendly time to meet each other.
