The Story of Chaplaincy on the Chelmsford Campus of Anglia Ruskin University 2008

Over four years ago now, three members of the Chelmsford Chaplaincy team completed major pieces of work for higher degrees, each of them a theological reflection, from their particular professional standpoint, on the place and impact of faith and Chaplaincy as it reacts with a Higher Education institution; a PhD thesis from The Rev'd Dr Michael Powell, part time lecturer in Built Environment, and two dissertations for the MA in Pastoral Theology from Diana Garfield, Faculty Liaison Librarian: AIBS Academic Services Division, and The Rev'd Ivor Moody, full time Chaplain.

Following this extraordinary and closely timed output of thought, we wanted to examine connections and shared themes between the three pieces of work, and to try in some way to produce a synthesis of thinking which would further Chaplaincy's understanding and ministry at Anglia Ruskin University.

The result is the launch of a little book on the 19th November 2008 which is an exercise in 'narrative theology'- looking at the history and interaction of Chaplaincy with the university from three different perspectives and which reflects the process of 'storytelling' upon which Michael, Diana and I were engaged when we were doing our separate pieces of work.
