Christian chaplaincy

The Christian chaplaincy is available, in person, online, via web chat, phone and video calls.


About the Christian chaplaincy

The Christian chaplaincy offers pastoral care and support, hospitality and community, and a space for questions, uncertainties and dilemmas. Come and explore how faith, love and justice relate to the world of study and work.

Fortnightly on Wednesdays during semester time, there is a free-church and Anglican communion at 1.10pm at the BNBR Life Centre in the Octagon Centre. Everyone is welcome for this 20-30 minute service, and for refreshments afterwards.

***Following a break due to staff absence, we are pleased to be resuming communion services on May 15. This will be followed by another communion service on June 5.***

An inclusive community

We offer a warm welcome to all staff and students regardless of gender, sexual orientation, marital status, age, ethnicity, ability or faith identity.
