Alan Findlay
Chaplaincy Graduate

“I really liked putting into practice what we learnt in our practical hours. I also liked that our trainers and facilitators gave clear examples of their own chaplaincy experiences to illustrate what we were being taught. It was good to be made to self-reflect. It’s an exercise I would usually avoid, but is hugely beneficial and necessary for the role of a chaplain or pastoral carer. I felt part of a family within our cohort.”

Abigail Comafay

Bachelor of Applied, Social Science Student

“I was studying the same degree at another university when the lecturer said that our worldview affects everything we do, especially in this job. At that moment, I realised I needed to find a new place to learn that aligns with my worldview. After asking around, I found Alphacrucis and I have never looked back."
