Chaplaincy Service | Minita Whakapono

Wellington campus

We recognise the world we live in is diverse and each of us is spiritually, emotionally and physically unique.

Connect: Being away from home and working hard can sometimes be a challenge. We are here to connect with you and help you connect with others.
Reflect: Student life gets pretty busy these days with deadlines, exams and projects. Sometimes it's really good to be able to take time out and take life in.
Support: Sometimes 'stuff' happens that we may not have bargained for. The chaplaincy is there for you in such times.

The creative campus

Massey Wellington is known as 'The Creative Campus.' The chaplaincy recognise the significance of the creative spirit within us that seeks to make sense of the world around us.

Imago Dei

The Chaplaincy understand that we are all created in the image of God. Therefore no matter what our faith, gender, race, income, sexual orientation or role on this Earth is, all of us reflect an image or imprint of God.
