Chaplains and Other Religious Representatives

Chaplains and other religious representatives are appointed by the University to represent and serve students and staff.

Currently, 12 faiths and denominations are represented at Queen's:
- Baptist
- Brethren
- Catholic
- Church Of Ireland (Anglican)
- Congregational
- Evangelical Presbyterian
- Humanist
- Methodist
- Non-Subscribing Presbyterian

There are four Chaplaincy Centres, all located adjacent to one another in Elmwood Avenue, opposite the Students' Union and close to the main University buildings. Each has a full-time Chaplain and other staff.

These Centres are:

  • The Presbyterian Community Centre, 12 Elmwood Avenue and Derryvolgie Hall, 49a Derryvolgie Avenue
  • The Church of Ireland (Anglican) Centre, 22 Elmwood Avenue
  • The Methodist Chaplaincy, 26 Elmwood Avenue
  • The Catholic Chaplaincy, 28 Elmwood Avenue 

Belfast also has a Hindu Temple, located in the city's Indian Community Centre, and a mosque, in the Islamic Centre in Wellington Park, a few minutes' walk from the University.

The chaplaincy centres provide a focus for weekday or Sabbath worship, a range of social events and activities, groups for prayer or study, in addition to pastoral care and counselling. Several of the centres also provide student accommodation. Students take a leading role in planning and preparing chaplaincy activities.

The chaplains and other religious representatives give a high priority to meeting students in halls and other accommodation.

They also provide counselling in a wide range of areas that relate to student life. Students are welcome to make contact with their religious representatives at any time.
