Chaplaincy

Our Campus Chaplain and College Church Pastors are here to assist in the personal and spiritual growth of the Avondale community.

There are many reasons why you might come to see a Chaplain or the College Church Pastors:
  • Pastoral and spiritual care, encouragement and practical assistance;
  • Support to students and staff in times of grief or personal crisis;
  • Opportunities to network with the local community
  • Religious resources for student and staff groups
