Spiritual Care Advice

At Northumbria, we see wellbeing as related to all dimensions of a person’s being: cultural, social and spiritual as well as physical, emotional and academic. Our chaplains are on hand to help you by offering a listening ear, encouragement, prayer and, sometimes, advice. Our Spiritual Care Team are happy to talk with you whatever your stance on life and its meanings. Our work includes: “Spiritual life-coaching” or “spiritual accompaniment” - helping you to explore perplexities of meaning and direction in life.

  • Helping groups to meet in Spiritual Care rooms (or other parts of the University).
  • Facilitating opportunities for prayer, worship and spiritual exploration.
  • Finding and disseminating information on local places of worship: churches, synagogues, mosques, mandir, gurdwara and other similar places.
  • Advising on the quiet and prayer places that are available on campus, including the Spiritual Commons Rooms, the Coach Lane Quiet Room, London Campus prayer room and the Muslim Prayer Facility.
  • Linking up the University, student faith societies and student faith groups based outside the university and the Students' Union.
  • Promoting understanding between people of different life-stances and encouraging dialogue, debate and respectful and frank exchanges of views.
