Chaplaincy

Religious and Spiritual Needs

Whether you are a member of a faith or belong to no faith tradition our Chaplaincy Service is available to provide spiritual support to all our students and staff.

The University provides designated multi-faith rooms at St John's and the City Campus. At the City Campus the Prayer and Quiet Room is located in Charles Hastings LG 030, with adjacent washing facilities. The Jenny Lind Chapel will also be available for prayer and quiet reflection when not in other use. At St John's, a Prayer and Quiet Room with adjacent washing facilities is located in Bredon, BB 179; this is for the use of all faiths and beliefs or for any staff or students needing to find a quiet moment to reflect during their busy day. The Multi Faith Chaplaincy Meeting Room, BB 178, is available for the use of Faith Groups and for relevant activities, such as Mindfulness workshops or Support Groups, by prior arrangement. The room can be booked by contacting chaplaincy@worc.ac.uk

The chaplaincy is committed to working for issues of peace and justice; as a first step towards this all tea, coffee, sugar and hot chocolate used in the chaplaincy are Fair Trade.

Hospitality Scheme for International Students:

Local families and churches host international students for a meal during the period over Christmas when the university is closed. It is a lovely opportunity to discover how Christmas is celebrated in Britain and an opportunity to make new friends. Those taking part, students and hosts, have all said how much they appreciated it. To join the scheme or ask for more details please contact chaplaincy@worc.ac.uk
