University Chaplaincy

We are open to all students and all staff at the University regardless of beliefs or philosophy. Welcome to visit us in "Naturvetarhuset".

The university chaplaincy aim to create spaces and venues where you get the opportunity to meet other people and share experiences of life and faith. We are there for everyone, regardless of belief, sexual orientation and gender identity or ethnicity. Kyrkan på Campus is located in the Natural Science ­building, second floor from the entrance.

Welcome to contact or visit us at the chaplaincy!


At times you might want to talk to someone. As chaplains we have several years of experience speaking with and counselling others. You are welcome to discuss any topic, regardless of your philosophy of life or religious beliefs.
We offer counselling both for students and personnel. Of course we are bound by professional secrecy, and all conversations are free of charge. ­Welcome to call or e-mail us to book. You can choose to meet up by phone, digitaly or at campus – indoors or outdoors. Just let us know what suits you.


The Sunday service at 11 am in Ålidhemskyrkan is always interpreted to ­English. Just ask for headphones at the back of the church.

A couple of services are also led by the University Chaplains and have the ­Ålidhem International Church Choir singing. 


Tuesdays at 12.15–1 pm and Thursdays at 12.30-1 pm

Christian group for international students

We are happy to share some information about a christian group of international students from Umea University and SLU that you are welcome to join.

We meet once a week at someone’s place or via Zoom to discuss biblical topics and have a good time together. Lately we´ve been meeting up at Ålidhemskyrkan, Sunday evenings. Besides that, we also meet every Wednesday to have Fika and share our thoughts and experiences as Christians but also to help each other in our daily lives in Umea. Sometimes we plan different activities together like going to Basketball matches or going Ice-skating. Everyone who is a Christian or who is just interested to come around, is very welcome to join us. We don’t belong to a specific church or denomination and experience the diversity in our group as a huge blessing.

You are welcome to join us or send a message to Svenja or Marcus who are part of the group.
