Chaplains and faith advisors
Introducing the Multifaith Chaplaincy team...
I oversee the work of our Chaplaincy as it seeks to support students and staff at SHU. Our focus is on matters relating to faith and religious belief but our door is open to all.I am a Christian priest in the Anglican tradition and enjoy meeting new people and exploring new places.
I’m Fr Lee. I like a nice brew, real ale and a good walk in the Peak District. I’m also a big fan of Jesus who called me to become a Catholic Priest in 2013. I’m here to support and journey with you in your time in Sheffield so get in touch if I can help in any way.
As a Bahá’í, I try to live my life in accordance with the teachings of Baha’u’lláh, in which the emphasis is above all on unity at every level. I teach in the Department of Management, and it is an honour to serve as Bahá’í Faith Advisor at Sheffield Hallam.
I have been a Buddhist most of my life, and practice in the SotoZen tradition. I also teach mindfulness courses at SHU and elsewhere which are open to all religions and none. In keeping with the Mindfulness Based Life Enhancement course which I teach, I do my best to savour life!
I am the Senior Pastor of Sheffield Community Church, a growing international church with a diversity of people from various nations and ethnicities around the world. I work with my chaplaincy colleagues to offer pastoral support to students and staff at the university.
I work in the International Student Support Team, and practice Hinduism as a religion and a way of life. Since moving to Sheffield in 2007 I have developed close links with the Indian and Hindu communities and would be happy to provide advice/guidance on matters relating to the Hindu faith.
I have served as Jewish Faith Advisor since 2004 and I also teach Law at SHU. If you are new to Sheffield and would like to meet members of the local Jewish community, help to start a Jewish student society, or if you witness or experience anti-Semitism on campus, do get in touch.
I am a Faith Advisor and ordained minister from the Methodist Church. In addition to my chaplaincy role, I work with students who worship in, or are affiliated to, the Methodist churches across Sheffield. I enjoy getting out into the Peak District, to walk, camp and (albeit very badly), climb.
I am here to help Muslim students at the University manage any faith-related issues that may affect their studies. As an ambassador of Islam I seek to inspire the students to work hard in order to achieve high spiritual and academic standards.
With my colleague Dr Khan, I help the Multifaith Chaplaincy respond to any issues related to Muslim beliefs and practices. We strive to help create a good environment for the Muslim students and staff at Sheffield University, and work closely with the Islamic Society.
I'm the Quaker Faith Advisor and being a Gestalt therapist I am very interested in the links between spirituality and psychotherapy. I enjoy travelling and have lived and worked in Mexico - so speak Spanish with a Yorkshire accent and make very tasty tortillas!
Contemporary Pagan and Ecological Spiritualities share the underlying premise that our relationships with the divine and numinous are best experienced in the natural world. If you are interested in these areas of spirituality and would like to join our community of practice, get in touch.
I have considerable involvement with the Sikh community, in and beyond Sheffield. Get in touch if you have any questions about the Sikh religion or if any issues arise on campus. We have a beautiful purpose-built gurdwara at Attercliffe where you will find a warm welcome.
Unitarians are diverse spiritual seekers who form loving communities around the common search. As minister of Upper Chapel I am happy to support students across a range of non-dogmatic faith approaches, including liberal Christianity and religious humanism.
