Bournemouth University


Whether you have a faith or not the Chaplaincy at BU supports all students.

A Chaplain is someone from a faith perspective who offers hospitality, care, guidance and a willingness to journey with you through your programme.

We provide a space for staff and students to relax and unwind, while exploring the world of spirituality - and enjoying some refreshments at the same time!

Whatever your ethnic background, and whatever your faith, we offer an open door policy, providing a spiritual meeting place with pastoral care and support.

We ensure a personal approach in a fast, increasingly impersonal world. If you're looking for a place to worship, pray or just ask questions, we're here to offer care and support along the way.

At the Bournemouth University multi-faith Chaplaincy, you can:

  • Talk to a Chaplain in confidence about personal matters
  • Be put in touch with local faith communities and places of worship
  • Explore the concept of religious faith and its implications for justice and peace
  • Join a group for prayer, study or fellowship
  • Ask questions about life issues.
