St Benet's is a bit like church, a bit like a coffee lounge, a lot like a home
The Chaplaincy is open throughout the day, Monday to Friday, from 9am to 5pm.
There are three main areas in St Benet's:
- The Chapel is a beautiful, peaceful space and is open for you to use at all times.
- The Lounge is a wonderful place to relax, play games, chat, make yourself drinks, cereals and toast, even work. We refurbished over the summer and it now feels wonderfully homely.
- The Quiet Room, a former library, with desks to work at or play board games on. The Quiet Room is also available to book out as a meeting room. For more information and bookings please contact Revd Ella Sharples via email firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Lounge is a wonderful place to be
The Lounge is open from
9am to 5pm Monday to Friday
Drinks are available all day, free of charge - coffee, tea, hot chocolate or water. Cereals and toast are always on tap.
A variety of groups, QMUL and QMSU societies use the Chaplaincy rooms for both occasional and regular meetings and events. The notice board in the Lounge will always have details of upcoming events.
Three of the things we do on a regular weekly basis are:
Wednesday 1.30pm to 2pm Mindfulness Meditation. Half an hour of guided reflection. Non-religious. No charge. No booking necessary.
Wednesday from 2pm to 4pm is a Board Game Afternoon. We have lots of classic board games plus some new ones to try. Just turn up and play.
Thursday afternoons are food-orientated. Thankful Thursday - a free vegetarian meal. There's always something to be thankful for.
