The Chaplaincy team prepares and leads worship and plans Chapel activities. They also minister to students, staff and alumni on any matter of concern or interest whether the matter is spiritual or not.
Trinity’s Chaplains are all University of Melbourne Anglican Chaplains. They provide the highest possible standard of pastoral care and worship to all members of the Trinity College community.
Chaplains are available to students and staff across all areas of the College and have an open door for whoever might drop by at any time. They might:
assist in the resolution of academic and life issues as brokers or advocates
marshal resources in times of need or crisis
accompany individuals and groups through various challenges
provide theological and non-theological mentoring to students.
The Chaplains also ensure that the College Chapel and 'The Prayer Space' (at 715 Swanston Street) are lively centres of worship by encouraging creative, respectful interaction across and within the different faith traditions represented in Trinity's diverse community.
