Pastoral care and spiritual support for students and staff
Pastoral care and spiritual support on campus
Kia ora koutou. A warm welcome to all new and returning students and staff. Our Chaplaincy team is here to support and encourage you during your years at University and Polytechnic. We are not out to convert you, but to accompany when you find yourself dealing with spiritual or religious questions. To be what the Irish call an anam chara - a soul friend.
We are here to provide pastoral care and a listening ear, to support people of faith (or no faith) in groups or individually, to pray with or for you, and to provide worship opportunities (informal or formal). We are here to help you nurture your spiritual health and well-being, so that you can achieve your academic and other goals in life.
Please come and visit us in the Upper Room on the Mezzanine Floor in the University Union building, or send us an e mail or txt to make an appointment. Our contact details are available under the "About the Chaplains" link .
