About the Meeting House and Chaplaincy

The Meeting House is not only an excellent place for chilling out, quiet study, chatting with friends or eating your lunch, but also the base for chaplains working on campus.

Chaplains do not just provide a service for members of their faith group but are here for the whole campus community, whether this means having a chat about faith issues or matters unrelated to religion and faith.

Inside the Meeting House

We are here to fill the gap for those who may not be interested in religion as such but would value talking about some of the "big questions" about life, direction, and the stuff that makes us tick.

Or you may just want to sit in the beautiful chapel on the first floor, whatever your religious peruasion – or lack of one – and be quiet for a time.

We also provide regular opprtunities through the week for staff and students to de-stress and relax through mindfulness and meditation sessions.

The First Floor is an amazing kaleidoscopic round building on the upper floor of the Meeting House – a kind of Christian Stonehenge – where the light is different every week and the atmosphere charged with a sense of the sacred.

Come and find friends, support and a big welcome for everyone – regardless of religious affiliation.
