What is the Chaplaincy?

We have created a Sanctuary on each campus, and at Pittville too. Our Sanctuary spaces are relaxed and welcoming - think comfy sofas, peaceful surroundings, tea and coffee. They’re a great place to chill in between lectures, or chat with others over lunch, or take some time out in the rooms we’ve set aside for prayer and meditation. Our spaces are there for everyone, whatever your beliefs.

You’ll often find a Chaplain around in one of the Sanctuary spaces. We’re always up for a chat over a coffee, and we are good listeners. You can also contact any of us through chaplaincy@glos.ac.uk

Activities for everyone

We have a range of great activities for you to join...

• Walking to a local park with some of the chaplains and their dogs

• Getting your hands dirty in the Oxstalls Peace Garden
