Who are the Chaplains at Reading?

There are several Chaplains and a Chaplaincy Assistant: meet the Chaplains.

What is the Chaplaincy?

The Chaplaincy is based around the work of our chaplains - a friendly group of men and women drawn from local places of worship 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 faithful 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
