The Chaplaincy is here for the benefit of all, students and staff, those of all faiths and none.

Chapel and Apple Tree Bishop Otter Campus

The Chaplaincy is an open space for those with a faith who want to celebrate it as well as for those with their doubts who want to question it; for those who are just looking and those who need somewhere neutral to reflect. It is for those who are experiencing difficulties and maybe don’t know where to start to get help.

Our Chaplain

Meet Rev’d Dr Alison Green

Rev’d Dr Alison Green, our Chaplain, was formerly the curate at Chichester Cathedral. Alison is from Dundee but has lived in Hampshire and West Sussex for many years.

She worked as a doctor in the NHS in Scotland, Chichester and South East Hampshire. Alison completed training in General Practice in Portsmouth and Chichester, then worked at Graylingwell Hospital as a Registrar in Psychiatry, before spending most of her medical career as a Community Paediatrician based in Leigh Park, Havant.

Alison trained for ordained ministry in Cambridge, although her theological study began as a part time student in the Theology department at University of Chichester.

Alison is based in the Chaplain’s office in the Chapel on Bishop Otter Campus but is regularly at the LRC on Bognor Regis Campus and is available to meet students and staff on either site.

Alison says Morning Prayer on weekdays at 9am, temporarily on MS Teams. All are welcome. Please email if you would like a Teams invitation. Other services are held on both campuses during the year.

There are prayer rooms/ quiet rooms on both campuses.

If you are looking for a local Church, place of prayer, worship or meetings for other faiths and beliefs, Alison will be able to discuss with you what you are looking for and suggest places where you may feel most at home. See a list of local places of worship below.

If you would like to know more about the Christian faith, or wish to deepen and affirm your faith through baptism or confirmation, Alison would be delighted to discuss this further.

Contact Alison by email at or by phone on 01243 816041.
