The University of Warwick Chaplaincy offers a friendly ear when things get challenging, for people of all faiths and none. Chaplains delight in the diversity of our community here at Warwick and all are welcome to engage with events, services and to seek support.
Keep in touch and seek support
- Meet with a Chaplain, online or in person. Get in touch with a chaplain directly or by filling out our enquiry form.
- Walk the labyrinth, on campus or at home. Cut into the grass in the space between Senate House and the Chaplaincy is a labyrinth, which can help with prayer, reflection and mindfulness. There are some ideas on how to use the space here. If you’re working at home, these ideas would work just as well on a stroll around your neighbourhood.
- Get a bit of encouragement from Warwick Chaplain’s instagram feed (@WarwickChaplain)
- Immerse yourself in a meditative walk. This guided prayer walk has been written in a way that it could be used by people with a very wide range of beliefs and practices. May be particularly good for people who identify as ‘spiritual but not religious’. Load onto your phone, dig out your headphones and make space for a good walk.
