Southlands Chaplaincy

Southlands College has a beautiful modern Chapel. It is open weekdays and you can drop in at any time. It is a place where whatever your faith you can relax away from your studies and reflect and meet other friendly students. There are events ranging from Christian worship to discussions to socials. You can have quiet time on your own or come in and light a candle, explore volunteering opportunities or engage with social justice issues.

You will see and get to know the chaplains about the university and they are here should you need a listening ear, have something to celebrate, are going through a difficult time or just fancy a chat about life, faith or the universe!
