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.

Our Chaplaincy team is here to ensure a culture of spiritual curiosity and inclusion for both students and staff at Bath Spa University, whatever your faith or world view.

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.

You will never be wasting our time, we are always really happy to talk with you about anything – be that a joyful event or something that is causing you concern. 

Our programme

Our programme includes morning prayer virtually on Mondays at 9am, and two regular drop-in sessions at Newton Park (Wednesday 11am-2pm) and at Locksbrook (Thursday 11am-1pm). At both drop-in sessions, our care dogs Pippa and Daisy will be available to you.

However, we are also happy to arrange to meet you at other times as well.

Each year, students have come up with fantastic ideas for new initiatives to help develop their curiosity in spiritual matters. Please do let us know if you have an idea we can help set up. 

Meet the Chaplains


Bath Spa University's Chaplain, Katy, pictured at Locksbrook campusI am the lead Chaplain for Bath Spa University. I am an ordained Anglican priest with a long history of being a student! My last job was being the vicar for a parish just outside Bristol. I live in Bath with my husband and I particularly enjoy walking my two spaniels, Daisy and Pippa, swimming (especially wild swimming) and travelling the world.

I enjoy the outdoors, camping holidays, walking and exploring the countryside. I also delight in the arts - theatre going, art galleries, music and reading. I am especially attracted to literary fiction and sci-fi. In my spare time I write creatively and have self-published several novels, mostly Young Adult.
