Prayer Room

I have a religious faith: what can you offer?

Your faith might require you to use a prayer mat or eat a special diet. You might need a sacred text or a religious book. You may like somebody to help with prayer or meditation. The chaplains can help with these things. The Chaplaincy Team includes representatives from six of the major world faiths:

  • Buddhism
  • Christianity
  • Hinduism
  • Islam
  • Judaism
  • Sikhism

Within Christianity, the Chaplaincy Team has Anglican, Free Church and Roman Catholic chaplains who offer the sacraments including bedside communion and the sacrament of the anointing of the sick. A number of Eucharistic ministers can also bring communion to the bedside on request.

If you belong to another faith / belief group, we are happy to visit you if you like, or to put you in contact with a member of your own faith / belief group.

The Chaplaincy Team endeavour to provide culturally appropriate care.

If you would like to meet a chaplain, please tell a member of staff on your ward.
