Sheffield will host the sixth global conference for chaplaincy in higher education 13th - 17th June 2022. A 24-hour pre-conference event will also be held the day before the official five-day conference begins.
The pre-conference will take place the day before the official conference begins, to provide an opportunity to explore a number of topics in depth prior to the main conference events.
Sessions will be led by chaplaincy practitioners and we anticipate several of our conference keynotes will contribute to this programme, including Kristin Aune, Harvey Belovski, Jana Bennett and Pádraig Ó Tuama.
Different 'tracks' will run concurrently and participants can stay entirely within one track or choose to shift between tracks.
Take a look at our pre-conference programme details for further information.
