Trinity College grounds


The Chaplaincy team offers relevant, meaningful and engaged pastoral support to staff, students and alumni. The team also organises and supports worship in the Trinity College Chapel and beyond.


The Chaplains at Trinity College 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, to people of all faiths and none, and have an open door for whoever might drop by at any time. They might:

  • provide hospitality
  • offer counselling
  • 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.
