REV DR JEREMY LAW (07730672273)

Going to university changed my life. Not only did I lean how to think and gain a new confidence in myself, but, unexpectedly for an atheist, I had an encounter with God! That was back in 1982. Since 1984, when I began training to be a minister, universities and ministry have been my whole life.  Actually, not quite the whole. There’s also been time for children and grandchildren, for bass playing and cycling, for fooling around with cars and eating fish and chips on the beach. Because university made such a profound difference to me, I’d like to help you to get the very most out of your time here.  

REV DAVE STROUD (07841615904)

As Senior Chaplain, Dave is responsible for the day to day running of the chaplaincy team and chapel. He works closely with staff and students to provide holistic care for the whole university community, looking after not only the universities faith provision but also contributing to the pastoral welfare of staff and students.


Alanna-Jayne is the youngest member of the chaplaincy team, serving in her second year as Associate Chaplain. AJ is the queen of hospitality and lead chaplain for initiates such as bargin corner, and the stress less nail bar.


Peter is one of two Associate Chaplains and divides his time between research, golf and pastoral care. Peter heads up God talk and is jointly responsible with AJ for the fabulous food served at community lunch and after all our services
