Julie Nicholson - Coordinating Chaplain
I have worked in parish ministry, hospital chaplaincy, theatre and broadcasting. I enjoy walking by the sea, people, stories and writing. I am available for pastoral and spiritual support for students and staff; including bereavement support and a friendly listening ear when life gets tough.
Associate Chaplains are faith and spirituality volunteers who provide support to the Coordinating Chaplain, including leading prayer or worship. Each Associate Chaplain will have their own faith, belief or spirituality and areas of particular interest but are available to provide pastoral care to staff and students of all faiths and none. Associate Chaplains may be UWE Bristol staff members or external community partners.
Corrine Brown – Associate Chaplain (Methodist)
I am a Methodist Deacon and support the work of the Bristol Methodist Centre for the homeless and minister to two small churches in the city. I am here to support students of any faith or none and offer confidential space to talk about spiritual or personal concerns.
Jacqueline Conradie-Faul – Associate Chaplain (Anglican)
I am the International Students Chaplain at the University of Bristol and have been involved in Chaplaincy life at UWE Bristol since 2005. I place a high value on building relationships unconditionally and without prejudice and am happy to speak to students of any faith or belief.
Lynsey-Ruth Mansfield – Associate Chaplain (Anglican)
I can provide a listening ear and pastoral care to those of any religion or belief, and offer support for those new to the faith or exploring it for the first time. I have experience operating in interdenominational and interfaith contexts within both UWE Bristol and the charity sector.
Rob Stewart – Associate Chaplain (Anglican)
I work part-time as a senior lecturer on the Glenside campus helping with Diagnostic Radiography BSc and the Foundation Program. I am an ordained minister in the Church of England, working mainly in rural parishes. My interests are primarily in well being and mental health awareness.
