St Helens College has a multi-faith chaplaincy as part of our student support team.
What is a chaplain?
Chaplains are here to help anyone who has questions about life. You don't need to be religious to ask for our help. The chaplaincy is multi-faith, meaning we can support you whatever your beliefs – even if you have none at all. We're here to listen.
A chaplain is not here to convert you to their way of thinking, but rather to support you. We provide care and support for any pastoral and academic issues that you may be facing. We will listen to you, chat with you, have a brew with you and be a professional friend for you. We offer tutorial sessions to classes, where you can explore faith in a deeper way.
St Helens College's Chaplaincy Team is supported by FBFE, the National Council of Faiths and Beliefs in Further Education. You can read about their work by clicking on this link: www.fbfe.org.uk.
Who is the chaplain for St Helens College?
The Chaplaincy Team is made up of two Chaplains. The Lead Chaplain is Paul Johnson and our Associate Chaplain is Tim Haines.
Where can I pray or meditate?
'The Chaplaincy Hub' is a quiet and comfortable room where you can go to rest, think, meditate or pray. It is equipped with Bibles, Korans and other literature, alongside prayer mats, ablution facilities, a Quibla Wall, comfortable seating and soft lighting.
There is a Chaplaincy Hub at our Town Centre Campus, Room BG89. Please ask at reception for directions.
