Greetings from Jen Woodfin, the Free Church Chaplain. Jen is a member of the UEA's Multifaith Centre team, which is there for all UEA students and staff - of all faiths or none.

Jen is normally available in the Centre on campus on Mondays, Tuesdays, and Thursday afternoons in term time.

  • Offering friendship and support
  • Listening to your concerns
  • Helping to meet your spiritual and religious needs

At the heart of the campus, UEA's Multifaith Centre provides a vibrant space for all members of the University community.  You can come here to relax, enjoy light refreshments, or spend time in public worship or quiet thought.  It's a popular gathering place that welcomes students and staff of any or no faith.

The Centre team are always glad to meet students and staff socially and pastorally.  As a valued part of the University's welfare network, the chaplains offer everyone a sympathetic ear in total confidence.
