Discover what Durham and the surrounding area has to offer in the form of faith support and different faith communities.
Chaplains are an integral part of the welfare provision and pastoral support that the University offers both to staff and students. Chaplains at Durham are either based in Colleges where their care is for all members of College, or they work across the University where the Chaplain usually represents a particular denomination or faith community (though they are still available to everyone).
University is a formative place. It can be a time in life that raises questions about identity, belief and your own personal values. Chaplains are here to help you explore these kinds of questions. They are also available to encourage those of faith and those looking to learn about faith.
