UoW Chaplaincy

Need someone to talk with about what’s going on in your life? Looking to connect with others of your faith, or even across faiths? Need a quiet space to think, pray, or meditate? Want to explore your spiritual journey with someone? Or just desperate for a coffee? Come and see us at the Lady Goodfellow Chapel, the home of chaplaincy on the Hamilton campus, or connect with us when we're visiting Tauranga.

Our two chaplains, Brother Andrew (Ecumenical) and Father JP (Juan Pedro) (Catholic) are available for pastoral support regardless of your background or beliefs. In 2023, we also have Assistant Chaplains volunteering alongside us on the Hamilton Campus: Nadine Werner and Nick Goodwin. Discussions are under way to appoint a volunteer Assistant Chaplain for our Tauranga Campus. We seek to nurture the spirituality of students and staff, encouraging you to work out your faith within your academic disciplines and vocations. The chaplaincy team provides a listening ear, reflection and feedback. Just drop in at the Hamilton Campus or make an appointment to see Brother Andrew when he visits Tauranga.
