DMU students and staff are invited to a special Meet-Up Monday at The Chaplaincy on 13 November, from 12.15-1.45pm, to celebrate Inter Faith Week.
In addition to Meet-Up Monday’s usual free bowl of hot vegetarian soup, The Chaplaincy will be offering a spread of sandwiches, and inviting everyone to relax, enjoy the food and have a chat.
The Chaplaincy is for DMU staff and students of all faiths and none, a relaxing space on campus where you can go to make yourself a tea or a coffee, to arrange a chat with a Chaplain or find out more about the events we provide.
You can find The Chaplaincy in the Portland building, accessible via the back entrance off Newarke Close. As swipe-card access has been installed, you are reminded to bring their ID card to get in.
The Chaplaincy invites you to come along and discover more about what The Chaplaincy offers – visitors don’t have to be religious, as everyone at DMU is welcome to enjoy the space.
In addition to the existing Prayer Rooms, the new Portland location now has a variety of other spaces. There is a new Chapel, where staff and students can pray or be prayed for and attend weekly services. The new location is also home to the Breathing Space, a serene space for reflection, contemplation, and meditation, where people of other faiths and people who don’t follow a particular faith can benefit from some quiet time too. Next to The Chaplaincy’s offices is the Sharing Space, a peaceful lounge and chill-out area where you can make yourself a cup of tea, relax and get some quiet time.
The Chaplaincy is open weekdays during term-time from 10.30am to 4.30pm, and posts regular updates events on Twitter and Facebook.
