Multi-faith Chaplaincy

Multi-faith Chaplaincy

We are here to provide pastoral care, support and advice to all members of the University community. Everyone is welcome and you do not need to have a faith to visit us. We want to share and nourish the vibrant multicultural campus that we all enjoy.

The University Multi-faith Chaplaincy supports a wide variety of society meetings, lunchtime seminars, prayer and study groups and other events.

Get involved in our activities

Bring along a coffee to the virtual café where you can connect with other students and regain some social normality during these difficult and uncertain times. Being in isolation does not mean that you are alone.


Needing a chat? Appointments are available online and in-person from Monday to Friday, 10am-4pm. Please email

Tea and Coffee

The Multi-faith chaplaincy is open for people to drop in for a tea/coffee or quiet space on Tuesdays & Thursdays, 11am-3pm.

Pet and Companion (PEACE) sessions

Need to talk? PEACE is a charitable organisation that provides pastoral care along with canine therapy for people requiring support and companionship.

Sessions are available on Mondays between 11am-3pm and Tuesdays 1.30-3.30pm.
The last session will be on 6th and 7th December, and will re-start w/c 31st January 2022.

Light Box


Do you already miss the sun? Some people have found that using a lightbox is helpful, and the Chaplaincy team has one available at the multi-faith chaplaincy. Book your half-hour slot between 10am and 3pm on both Wednesdays and Thursdays by emailing

Multi-Faith Prayer Wall

Located within King's College Chapel there is a Prayer Tree, decorated with the prayers and thoughts of those who visit. 

We would like to continue this tradition by creating a space where we can all share our hopes, dreams, thanks and prayers for ourselves, our family, neighbours and the World.

This space is designated for everyone; people who follow no particular faith or those who wish to share their thoughts, prayers, hopes and expressions of thanks during these challenging days.

Thoughts & Prayers

May God give our bodies and minds strength and bless us with courage and hope. May we find empathy and solidarity in times of physical isolation. May we find forgiveness for struggling and failing in these tough times. May we find peace in feeling protected as children of God.
