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.
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. The dates are:
Evening mass Wednesday 24 October and 12 December at 6.30 pm
