Chaplaincy Room

The Chaplaincy is fortunate to have a large room, shared with St Cuthbert’s Parish, used for meetings, talks or social events most evenings.

During the day it is normally available for students or parishioners to drop in, and it’s quite a handy space for those living out or based at more distant colleges! There are facilities for tea and coffee and a library which is well-stocked with books of general theological interest.

Access to the Chaplaincy Room is via the passage behind the church. A keycard access system has been installed, so students can gain access at any reasonable time – and the Chaplaincy is fast becoming a popular space for to meet and study. Keycards are available, for a £10 deposit, from the Chaplaincy/Parish Office. WiFi internet access is also available.

You even can pay the KeyCard deposit online via PayPal by clicking here – we’ll let you know when the card is ready to collect.



Students and parishioners can borrow books from the Chaplaincy library – see the Library page for details and to search the catalogue.

Bike Shelter

The Chaplaincy has a bike shelter behind the church, which can be accessed via the same keycards which give access to the Chaplaincy Room.

Although the bike shelter is behind a locked gate, bicycles are left at the owner’s risk, and a secure bike lock is recommended.


The beautiful garden at St Cuthbert’s is available for use by students for reading, study and relaxation – a great quiet resource especially for Easter Term!
