Working with God to serve the whole King's community                                                        Chaplaincy Cross Huddle

***As things stand, the Chaplaincy is working remotely, but is available via email. Find out about what the Chaplaincy is doing during Lockdown here. Please note the current advice from King's re Coronavirus***


King's College London has a Christian foundation, in the Anglican tradition, and takes seriously the pastoral and spiritual support of all students and staff. The Chaplaincy team is a resource for the whole community and we have Chaplains at each of the campuses who are available to see any member of staff or student in confidence. You can drop in whenever you find the door open or you can make an appointment by email or phone.

You do not have to have a spiritual crisis or be a Christian to see a Chaplain: we are practiced listeners and have a wealth of experience in supporting people through relationship, work and study difficulties, spiritual and vocational issues.  If we are unable to help, we often know who can.

The Chaplaincy team is made up of men and women from several Christian traditions, in the main - some are clergy, some are members of religious communities or lay ministers. We also have a Jewish Chaplain, Dr Harrie Cedar, and two Muslim Chaplains, Imam Abdul Mumin Choudhury and Romana Kazmi, and work closely alongside Dr Ehsan Khan as Muslim Adviser as well as Rabbi Gavin Broder, Chaplain to Jewish students in London.

Chaplains are public figures in the university.  We are part of the glue that holds King's together as a vibrant, caring community.  You are always welcome to accost us when you see us around the place!


We hold regular services to which all are welcome and we ensure that, day by day, the sacred is celebrated in our midst and the members and work of King's are prayed for.


We also hold special events throughout the Academic Year, to which all staff and students are welcome - find out more here.
