The Chaplaincy – Bath Spa University

Here for everyone. Here to walk with you through opportunities and challenges. Here to talk about questions of life and faith.

We care about you and we want you to flourish as much as you can in these complicated times. Our chaplains are always happy to meet new people, whether virtually or in a park, in a coffee shop or in the multi-faith room.

Our programme

Our programme includes morning prayer, meditation, drop-in sessions and a craftivist collective. We have a weekly presence at Newton Park and at Locksbrook, but we are happy to arrange to meet you at other times as well. Each year, students have come up with fantastic ideas for new initiatives. Let us know if you have an idea that we can help to make happen.
