Associate Chaplains

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.
