We see that our own involvement in DiscipleshipCare for Others, and matters of Social Justice and Environmental Stewardship all form part of a broad Proclamation of the Good News of God. 

As such, we are also keen to work alongside those of other faiths and none, to do what we can to establish a world in which peace, fairness and sustainability are a growing reality.

Activities

Some of the things we have been involved with in recent years, or on an ongoing basis, are:

  • Christian Aid Week - we have a long-standing relationship with Christian Aid, with visiting speakers regularly helping us to broaden our awareness
  • Fairtrade - Chaplaincy led the University's successful application for Fairtrade status, and promotes 'Fairtrade Fortnight' each year
  • Green Impact - we have participated in the University's sustainability initiative seeking to ensure departments operate with environmental-awareness
  • Campus Giveaways - this is a simple way of showing kindness and generosity to those we live and work amongst
  • Sponsored Events - many of our community engage in fundraising for various causes, including 'Live Below The Line' to raise money for 'Tearfund'
  • Chester TWIN - the Chaplaincy has long been a committed supporter of the University's charity, Chester TWIN, offering overseas aid and funding

Furthermore, we also aim to support the excellent work of both the Christian Union and CathSoc, whether simply in prayer or in active collaboration, and are warmly open to working with other groups on the campuses or further afield.
