Earlier in the summer Canterbury Christ Church University and the Research Centre for Trust, Peace and Social Relations (and others), in collaboration with academic and ecumenical partners, launched an important report about chaplaincy on campus. You can read the report, along with its recommendations HERE.
The report is detailed and covers a great deal of ground - if you are interested in this topic, but do not have the time to read it all, you may find the introduction, recommendations and chapters 1, 7 & 8 particularly helpful in giving an overview.
Here is an extract from the Introduction: “Chaplaincy is a significant aspect of university life. The chaplaincy is often the first port of call for students of faith, as well as for non-religious students, staff, international students and those seeking a supportive, listening ear.” Read more here….
Chaplains play a vital role in the life and times of universities across the country. The FCG have been actively exploring this as part of their work on our HE Working Group. You can read more about the work of the FCG in relation to HE here.
