Who are the Chaplains at Reading?
There are five Chaplains and a Chaplaincy Assistant: meet the Chaplains.
What is the Chaplaincy?
The Chaplaincy is based around the work of our six chaplains - a friendly group of men and women drawn from local churches who offer support to students and staff, whatever their religious beliefs.
"The chaplaincy is a warm, friendly environment - an oasis of calm in the centre of campus. There are many opportunities to meet with people from a wide variety of backgrounds or to find a quiet place to meditate and chill out".
(Lee, University Staff)
We aim to
be a reflective, praying, God-centred faith community, respectful of and enriched by our distinct traditions
resource a space in which students and staff are accepted, nutured, and can find confidence, healing and spiritual growth
be a Christian witness affirming all that is good, promoting justice and peace, and respect and care for God's Creation
facilitate dialogue between people of all faiths and viewpoints in an environment of trust
