Welcome to the Universities Chaplaincy in Leeds

Important notice:

The Chaplaincy team continue to do most of our work remotely, but we are now providing a limited presence at the Emmanuel Centre.

We are still offering drop-in sessions and appointments remotely and our group activities remain online – visit Chaplaincy-run Worship and Activities for details.

In addition, however, we can offer limited face to face appointments with some chaplains at the Emmanuel Centre.

The Claire Chapel is also open, but for private prayer only.

If you would like to leave a prayer request and have a candle lit on your behalf, or see details of current worship, please see our Virtual Chapel page.

Key 7-->Resilience: Find ways to bounce back when things don't go as planned.
All of us have times of stress, loss, failure or trauma in our lives. How we respond to these events has a big impact on our well-being. We often cannot choose what happens to us, but we can choose how we react to what happens.
-Let’s take action:
*Ask for help. Talk to a friend, talk to an expert, reach out to a colleague, ask a neighbour to lend a hand.
*When something is troubling you, do something you really enjoy. Shift your mood and bring a new perspective on the problem.

'Very little is known about the life of David (Dewi Sant); even the year of his death is uncertain, but was probably at the end of the 6th century. To him is attributed the foundation of ten monasteries, most notably that of Mynyw or Menevia in Dyfed, where the communities led very strict lives in accordance with the practices of the Egyptian hermits... His shrine at Mynyw (St David’s) became a place of pilgrimage in the 12th century, from which time he has been honoured as the patron of Wales.'
