PUT A SOCK IN IT! Campaign

No one can fail to notice the number of homeless people on our streets at the moment.  If you are feeling helpless and wondering what to do, we have one suggestion here in the Chaplaincy. The Manna Centre at London Bridge has need of donations of clothing for its guests. They are looking for men and women's socks, underwear, hats, scarves and gloves. Also, men's jeans and trainers and women's winter coats. Additionally, sleeping bags and blankets are like gold dust! Donated items can be new or clean second hand. There is a donation box in the Chaplaincy area on every campus, so go on, put a sock in it!!!

For more information, please contact Laurence, Lay Catholic Chaplain at Guy's campus.

Baptism & Confirmation

If you would like to explore the possibility of being Baptised and/or Confirmed, courses will be run by Roman Catholic and Church of England chaplains on various campuses. If you are interested please contact the Chaplaincy and specify your primary campus and Christian tradition.
