Spiritual and Religious Support

The Multifaith Chaplaincy Services provides an inclusive and holistic approach to spirituality.

Our Volunteer Chaplains support Unitec students and staff of all faiths, as well as those of no particular faith. Our Chaplains are non-judgemental of personal lifestyles and are there to assist everyone.

What we offer

  • A confidential listening presence and support for everyday matters, or for times of transition, stress or crisis.
  • Informal discussions about issues of faith and life.
  • Prayer/ worship on campus and a connection with other local worshipping communities.
  • A chance to participate in interfaith events like The Week for World Peace.
  • Opportunities to connect with other students and staff who are interested in faith/ spirituality and to participate in Spirituality Week.
  • Resources for reading, listening, and reflection.
  • Unitec Christian Staff Network and connections to Faith-based Clubs at Unitec.
  • Oversight for the Muslim Prayer Rooms and Multi-faith Chapel.
