The Chaplaincy staff and community are here for all members of the University, whether student or staff, those of all faiths and none.

"Chaplaincy is a place where Friendships are formed and nurtured through Learning more about God, ourselves and others, where Worship, both individual and corporate, inspires our participation in God’s life and Mission"

— Chaplaincy ethos

We believe that hospitality and acceptance are vital as we seek to live out the two greatest commandments from Jesus, that of loving God and loving others as we love ourselves. Food, friendship, pastoral care, prayer, listening, laughter, tea, tears, coffee and conversation are all part of what we can offer you if you drop into the Chaplaincy:

  • Longfield House (Chaplaincy House) - next to the Binks building on the Exton Park site, Parkgate Road, Chester.

  • Aiken Hall, Chaplaincy Community Hub, University Centre Warrington.


In these strange times, do remember that Chaplains are around if you would like to chat, in the medium and on the platform of your choice! An email is a good way of establishing contact: 

at Chester with Peter (; Laura (; and Aziz (

at Warrington with Gill (;

at Shrewsbury with Fi (

We all look forward to the day when we are again able to meet face to face without restrictions, but in the meantime let us keep ourselves and each other safe and make the best we can of available means of contact.

Pastoral Care

We all need someone to talk to from time to time at challenging moments in our lives. Sometimes we turn to our friends or family for support or advice but at other times we may need different perspectives. Our Chaplaincy team staff have experience of supporting individual students and staff through times of questioning or personal crisis, can provide a listening ear and offer an objective opinion. All our Chaplaincy staff have training and experience in mental health awareness and accompanying people on their spiritual journeys (but please note that we are not professional counsellors and will refer to the student counselling service or occupational health where appropriate).

Please email to make an appointment.
