The motto of Hope University is "Faith, Hope and Love". These are words taken from St Paul's letter to the Corinthians. The University strives to live by these three virtues. The chaplaincy team works with students and staff to try and live these out in daily life.
Faith: Chaplaincy is where you can come to ask the big questions of life.
Hope: With the chaplaincy team you can bring Hope to those in need locally and globally through social justice and volunteer projects.
Love: Chaplaincy is a vibrant place where you can meet new people from throughout the world and where there is a genuine sense of community whoever you are. It is also a place to find a listening ear when times are difficult.
The Chaplaincy is at the rear of the EDEN Building, Hope Park, but the team are to be found around the campuses, as well as in Hope Chapel every day. Come into the chaplaincy for £1 lunch every Monday or drop by for tea and coffee whenever you want.
If something is really getting you down then it might be a good idea to talk to someone. The chaplains are always here to talk to. We are open-minded and non-judgemental. There is a small room in the chaplaincy which is a great place to talk to one of the chaplains in a more private setting. To contact the listening service you can email us, call us on the number below or drop in. Chaplains are available Monday to Friday all day and some evenings.
The Chaplaincy’s Facebook and twitter feeds are good places to keep up to date with our latest events, to share ideas and meet people, as well as learn more about our regular services and events. You can also refer to the Chaplaincy Bulletin that is emailed to all staff and students every Wednesday to learn more about our regular services and events.
