Te Puna Karaiti ~ VUW Chaplaincy

Te Puna Karaiti* ~ The Anglican Chaplaincy operates just down the road from St. Mic’s at Victoria University.

* ‘The Well of Christ’

A great little café runs out of Ramsey House (home of the chaplaincy on campus, 8 Kelburn Parade), along with a range of other programmes and pastoral ministry. It’s also a good place for students and staff to meet or just hang out.

The chaplaincy runs a variety of programmes throughout the year which it posts on its facebook page. Most of these centre on relating the Gospel to the academy and the issues of our time.

There is also a great library at Ramsey House with an on-line catalogue. Again, apart for a strong biblical studies section, the emphasis of the collection is on connecting the disciplines of the academy to the Gospel.

St. Mic’s shares resources between our ministries and many students who attend St. Mic’s are also involved in Te Puna Karaiti.
