Get Involved

Get involved at the Martin Luther King Multi-Faith Centre

There are a number of ways that students can get involved in the life of the Chaplaincy at Aston University.

Students who regulary engage with the Chaplaincy have the opportunity to become Chaplaincy Ambassadors or Chaplaincy Volunteers. These roles provide oppurtunities for engaged students to support the work of the Chaplains in a non-pastoral capacity. 

Chaplaincy Ambassadors

Chaplaincy Ambassadors are recruited each year from students who have been regular and engaged members of the Chaplaincy community. This voluntary role involves:

  • Assisting the Chaplains with organising and running events in the Martin Luther King Multi-Faith Centre.
  • Signposting students to the Chaplains or to other sources of help and support as appropriate. 
  • Representing students' views to the Chaplaincy team to change or improve the service. 

Chaplaincy Ambassadors are asked to make a regular manageable commitment of time to support the work of the Martin Luther King Multi-Faith Centre. 

Chaplaincy Volunteers

Any student who wishes to actively participate in the work of the Martin-Luther King Multi-Faith centre is invited to become a Chaplaincy Volunteer. This is a less formal role than the Chaplaincy Ambassadors but acknowledges that students might wish to contribute in other ways. 

How to get involved

If you are interested in becoming a Chaplaincy Ambassador please write a short letter (no more than two sides of A4) and send it to chaplaincy@aston.ac.uk outlining the following:

  • Why you want to become a Chaplaincy Ambassador.
  • How you have benefited from the Chaplaincy.
  • What skills and experience you have that you feel would be useful in the role.

If you would like to be involved in the Chaplaincy in a less formal capacity as a Chaplaincy Volunteer please talk to one of the Chaplains.
