Spiritual and pastoral care

We have an understanding that everyone has spiritual needs, whether or not they have a particular religious belief or identity with a faith community. The Chaplains can provide you with opportunities to dicuss your spiritual needs, and the chance to explore your thoughts or questions on some of lifes dilemmas and deeper issues.

They can also help ensure any particular religious needs are being met, such as:

  • Arranging a visit from your own faith community
  • Pray with you, or ensure that a quiet place is found for you to pray
  • Provide Holy Communion
  • Ensure that you are receiving Halal or Kosher foods as appropriate
  • Help you to make contact with a local faith community
