The Chaplaincy Centre

The Chaplaincy Centre

We are a welcoming and engaging place for people of all faiths and none. We offer space for exploring issues of spirituality and building community, or just a quiet place to eat your lunch.

Reduced hours

Please note that the Chaplaincy Centre operates at reduced hours during August and early September. Please direct any queries to chaplaincy@lancaster.ac.uk, which will be monitored regularly.  In the event of serious concern, please contact the Wellbeing Manager, Sarah Sweeney: s.sweeney@lancaster.ac.uk
