About Anglican Chaplaincy Wellington

History: The Chaplaincy was created in the early 1960’s to meet the pastoral needs of Anglicans, share the Good News of the Gospel and encourage the Lordship of Christ to bear upon the academic life of the university.  In the early 2000’s Ramsey House, home to the Anglican Chaplaincy, began a major makeover transforming the premises into a ministry facility with a deliberately ‘outward looking’ feel about it.  This included the development of a café, a commercial kitchen, new office spaces, a library, and upgraded chapel. 

An intentional Christian flat was started upstairs and has been home to many students for over a decade.

Chapel: The Chapel of the Transfiguration is a sanctuary on the campus offering a place of quiet reflection and meditation, as well as a venue for regular prayer and worship gatherings.

Pastoral Care: The Chaplaincy aims to nurture and encourage the spiritual lives of staff and students at VUW.  We also work alongside the University Student support services to provide Christian pastoral care. The Chaplaincy offers hospitality through a welcoming, safe, fun meeting place at Ramsey House where anyone of any background can experience the love and acceptance of Christ. We also provide regular opportunities for prayer and worship within the university including celebrating the Eucharist at Ramsey House, and supporting ecumenical ministry at the university.

Koha: Our lounge at Ramsey House has a cafe vibe which includes being able to enjoy a koha hot drink. We offer the best filter-coffee available on campus (Flight are our suppliers) plus a selection of T2 teas, and hot chocolate. Come in and sit-down or takeaway, and it's all for koha (donation). Bring your own food. Also, if you'd like to join our volunteer team and serve hot drinks for an hour a week to the wonderful people at VUW please contact Karel - This email address is being protected from spambots.
