The Methodist Chaplaincy Welcomes You!
We welcome all students who wish to explore their faith in the context of an open, friendly & thoughtful community. You do not have to sign up to any particular beliefs – this is a place where very different stories can be shared and where questions are as important as certainties in the faith.
The Methodist Chaplaincy team Steve Ward and Bruce Sawyer will always be pleased to meet with you to talk, whether or not you have any other links with the Chaplaincy. If you are facing a crisis, or if you just feel in need of a chat, let us know and we will be very happy to meet up with you. Han serves Korean Language Students.

Societies/What's Going On?
Every 4th Sunday at the Mint we have informal Café style worship, taking look at topical subjects from a Christian perspective, all with food and fellowship. 6pm for food, 6:30 for worship.
On Streatham Campus
The Chaplaincy team has an office on the ground floor of the Forum. It is normally open from 10 to 4 Monday to Friday during term time - you can contact or leave messages for the Methodist or other chaplains there. Chaplaincy events on campus often take place in the Chaplaincy Rooms on the first floor of the Old Library Building
The Methodist Anglican Society (MethAng), meets in the Chaplaincy Rooms on campus on Monday evenings. As a student-run Guild society, MethAng is independent of the Chaplaincy, though with strong traditional links. MethAng also have a strong link to the Mint.

Who are the Methodists?
The Methodist Church is a part of the wider Christian community. The Methodist movement was founded in the 18th Century by John Wesley, and it has about 70 million members worldwide.
Methodists have always been clear that no one is beyond the reach of God’s love. Salvation is there for everyone who turns to God, and not just for a chosen few.
Methodist Churches seek to be inclusive, welcoming to those of all faiths, nationalities and lifestyles. We seek to:
- celebrate God’s love in worship
- help each other to grow as Christians
- share the good news of Jesus Christ
- care for the poor and the needy
- challenge injustice in God’s name.
