Coordinating Chaplain

Jan Sutton

I am the Coordinating Chaplain for the Centre of Faith and Spirituality.

As part of Student Services, my team and myself are here to support staff and students of all faiths and none. 

I enjoy keeping fit through boxing, which I have been doing with my personal trainer for the past three years. I also enjoy interior design and my next project is a log cabin in my garden. I love to spend time with my family and friends, and of course my dog Wally!

As a Methodist Minister and a member of a Religious Order, International Women’s Day is very special to me. I am reminded of the many women in my order who went before me and sacrificed so much more than I have, for example, they were not allowed to marry or afforded the same level of opportunity.

I am also reminded of the many women I have been privileged to meet in many different countries who have, with dignity and courage, stood up for the rights of their communities giving hope and bringing justice and respect for their sisters.
