Welcome to the University Multi-Faith Chaplaincy

Welcome to the University of Aberdeen Multi-faith Chaplaincy.

The University of Aberdeen warmly welcomes students and staff from many diverse nations, cultures, faiths and beliefs. This diversity enriches our whole community, making Aberdeen a great, globally-minded place to study and work.

The Multi-faith Chaplaincy is, at its very heart, a place of pastoral care. Chaplains provide not only a welcome but support and advice to members of the community in times of stress, crisis, bereavement or illness. We are also here for those simply wanting to explore questions of a personal or confidential nature.

The Multi-faith Chaplaincy encourages students to grow in body, mind and spirit. We also build community through events and meals and we provide doughnuts at a free social evening every Wednesday from 7pm-9pm at Hillhead Halls of Residence where many first year and international students live.

The Multi-faith Chaplaincy is supported by a wonderful team of enthusiastic Honorary Chaplains and Faith Representatives. The Chaplaincy actively works to develop and organise inter-faith dialogues and community celebrations. There are many different faith and cultural societies in the University who use the Chaplaincy facilities.

We operate a Chaplaincy email list, sending out occasional updates on events occurring throughout the term. If you would like to be added to the Chaplaincy Centre or Christian Staff mailing lists please email: chaplaincy@abdn.ac.uk

Please search our pages to discover more about what we can offer you and feel free to pop into the Chaplaincy at 25 High Street for a tea, coffee or chat and the Chaplaincy team along with our administrators Gillian and Wendy will offer you a warm welcome.
