IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT: due to the present circumstances, the Chaplaincy building, also known as Mansefield, is now closed for meetings, gatherings of student societies and all one-to-one appointments until further notice. 

The Chaplaincy is continuing to offer pastoral care for students and staff - contact the Chaplain Donald MacEwan on or Assistant Chaplain Samantha Ferguson on to arrange meetings by phone. 

Regular services of worship in St Salvator's and St Leonard's Chapels will no longer be taking place in chapel this semester, however Sunday worship and Compline will take place remotely.   Please feel free to contact the Chaplaincy secretaries on or Donald for further details. 

Chaplaincy Companionship is the Chaplaincy blog during the current season. We are all conscious that these are extraordinary times. This blog will offer a different perspective, in pictures, poetry and prayers, music and reflection, from across the
Chaplaincy team. It will also give us in the Chaplaincy a regular and frequent chance to let you know of any changes to
Chaplaincy events and keep you posted with details on upcoming LIVE streamed services.



The Chaplaincy is a university department which enhances the life and experience of students and staff in all sorts of ways.

We offer ecumenical worship in the beautiful medieval chapels on Sundays, weekdays, Christmas, graduation, for weddings,
and other significant occasions.   All are welcome at these services.

We offer pastoral care for any student or member of staff, regardless of faith or philosophy of life. This could be a sympathetic, confidential listening ear, support in emotional issues, a safe place to explore questions of faith or sexuality, someone to talk to
in a crisis, or support when all else fails.

We support people of different faiths, providing honorary chaplains, space in the Chaplaincy building (called Mansefield, across
from the Union), and we sponsor the Interfaith Steering Group, which runs wonderfully stimulating events.

We have a range of facilities available for both student groups and individuals, including small and large meeting rooms, kitchen, garden and quiet meditation/prayer spaces.

And we offer a particular programme of hospitality to international students for whom English is not their first language.
