University Chaplaincy

Universities Chaplain: Rev Robin Selmes
Student Development Worker: Sue Harrington
Rev Robin Selmes is the Methodist chaplain at Brighton and Sussex Universities. He is supported by a part time Student Development Worker, Sue Harrington. The work is very different in the two locations because Sussex University is campus based and Brighton University is spread over the city. In true Methodist fashion however it is hospitality based. At Sussex, focus is on the needs of international students through the provision of welcome packs for new arrivals, a Christmas Day lunch on campus and various social events including a bonfire evening and Afternoon Tea. For Brighton students focus is on a coffee-shop drop in and a knitting group at the arts building, a light lunch provided once a week during term time at Dorset Gardens and a monthly film club. Chaplaincy activities are advertised on the Student Circuit website and on the Facebook networking site.
