The Student Services Centre (SSC) is responsible for providing a wide range of services to students, staff and agencies external to the University. The
role of the Multifaith Chaplaincy Service at ECU is the provision of specialist pastoral support to students and staff so that they may pursue their religious
affiliations and interests in the context of life at ECU. Under the vision of “supporting spirituality, providing care and creating community” at ECU the
Multifaith Chaplaincy Service seeks to promote an inclusive community which fosters respect for the various religious traditions.
Visiting Chaplains are chaplains who are not employed by ECU but are given standing by ECU to work within the Multifaith Chaplaincy Service. Visiting
Chaplains are endorsed by their own religious traditions to provide religious and pastoral care services to members of their own religious tradition, as
well as being available to the wider ECU community.
