REV DR JEREMY LAW Dean of Chapel (07730672273)

Going to university changed my life. Not only did I learn 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 Senior Chaplain (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.


Maddie is the youngest member of the chaplaincy team, serving in her first year as Lay Chaplain. Maddie is a Theology and Religion, Philosophy and Ethics graduate from CCCU. The rest of her time she spends writing and playing music.


Peter is an Associate Chaplain and divides his time between research, golf and pastoral care. Peter heads up God talk and does a lot of work with postgraduate students.
