The Chaplaincy Service is a unique and vibrant place in Cardiff Metropolitan University. It has a unity which honours those of all faiths and those of none and is a welcoming, confidential and safe environment available to all staff and students.
We provide support through the difficult times and love to celebrate your successes too. We provide bereavement support, space to discuss spirituality and faith, coordinate efforts to improve cultural cohesion on campus, raise awareness of hate crime and are always a listening ear for when you need to talk. Our doors are always open.
Cardiff Metropolitan University is multi-cultural and multi-faith, with over 95 faith traditions from 140 different countries.
The Chaplaincy Service is central to the university's equality and diversity and ethics processes and student advocacy is a positive role embedded in our work. The Chaplaincy also runs an emergency food bank.
The Chaplaincy Service has an academic role in that it has a research focus and lectures across a range of subjects at postgraduate and doctorate levels. Subjects include bereavement, radicalisation, grooming and social/cultural risks which might impact the student population.
Our overriding ethos is: 'Here, people matter'. We never turn our back on anyone in need!
We have three multi-faith prayer rooms across our campuses. In Llandaff these can be found at rooms A0.22 (Female Prayer room) and A0.23 (Male Prayer Room) and also include ablution facilities. In Cyncoed, the multifaith prayer room is the Chapel, room C018 with ablution facilities available in the same corridor (C0.T4B).
