Ethos of the Chaplaincy, Mansefield
The ethos of Mansefield is a peaceful setting where people, both as individuals and as groups, should feel welcomed and respected; where they can meet, relax and enjoy company; and where they can find space to be quiet, to pray, to mediate and develop spiritually.
Respect for individuals and other groups must be paramount in any individual or group using the building or garden, and no person should feel that he/she has been coerced into any activity within a group.
