You can choose who you would feel most comfortable speaking to. Our team includes female and male chaplains, Marylee and David.

If you would like to contact someone specifically from your own faith, our Honorary Chaplains are available from many different faiths. You can find a list of them below. We can contact someone from your own practice or faith for you or give you directions and contact details for different faith groups and churches.

If you do not see your faith represented here, please let us know as we hold details of many more churches and faiths in Aberdeen. There are also many active Faith Societies at the University, which you can find here and through AUSA.
