Chaplaincy services for Tertiary students

Conversation | Molk | 11th February 2020

Heading off to University or TAFE for the first time can be really daunting. Will I make friends? Where is this class? Who can I turn to for support?

The PULSE team have pulled together this list of Uniting Church tertiary chaplaincy services and congregations nearby that will welcome you and make you feel at home. Some even have accommodation options – contact them quickly if you’re looking for a place to stay.

If you feel anxious, worried or overwhelmed – reach out.

The chaplains, the ministers, the congregations, and even the PULSE team, can pray for you and help point you in the right direction.
