Our Chaplaincy brings people together, builds community and adds to our pastoral support service.

Make connections and feel welcomed

For students and staff from all faiths and from none, the Chaplaincy service helps you to share time, ideas and friendship. We believe that spiritual wellbeing is important and the Honorary Chaplains and Belief Contacts that make up the team represent many of the main world religions and promote a multi-faith and belief approach. A new uni, a new city, a new way of life. All these things can be quite overwhelming and you may need some support settling in.

The Chaplaincy can help you reach out to make new connections, meet new friends and feel part of the Edinburgh Napier community.

What we do

The Chaplaincy team provides a service designed to offer support.

We are that listening ear and can offer personal support for a wide range of matters. We can also be the link to other professional support services if you are having difficulty reaching out to them or we feel that you could be better supported there. We are here for the whole University and offer a developing range of activities designed to build and support our community and to help reflect on life events and spiritual matters.

The team is made up of a diverse group of Honorary Chaplains and Belief Contacts including representatives from the Church of Scotland and other local churches, the Edinburgh Roman Catholic Chaplaincy, Scottish Jewish Chaplaincy, and contacts from Baha’i, Buddhist, Hindu, Humanist, Orthodox, Muslim, Pagan and Sikh communities.

We welcome everyone

We provide a non-judgemental and welcoming service to all and do not discriminate against anyone based on age, gender, disability, ethnicity, gender reassignment, religion, sexual orientation, or any other characteristic.
