Trinity College expects to appoint a Chaplain for a period of four years to start from around 1 September 2019.
The person appointed will be one of two Chaplains who play an important part in the conduct of worship in the College Chapel. Chaplains are also central to the life of the College in general, particularly in the pastoral care of students, Fellows and staff. He or she will work closely with the Dean of Chapel and the Director of Music. The College will be happy to provide opportunities for further training and to explore an association with a parish.
Trinity College was founded in 1546 by Henry VIII and is the largest of the Cambridge colleges with about 1,000 students in residence. Sir Gregory Winter is Master and there are around 180 Fellows covering most branches of learning. There are also about 300 full and part-time staff. Trinity is an intellectually inspiring place for undergraduates and graduates to pursue their education and research, and to enjoy the many opportunities (cultural, sporting and social) that a well-resourced
College can provide.
Trinity College’s fine Chapel is prominently located in the College and is a focal point for members of College and visitors to the city. The community drawn together through Chapel worship and other events is vibrant and diverse. Trinity College Choir is regarded as one of the leading choirs in the world. All choral services are webcast live from the Chapel and available to listen again, with a substantial international audience. An ability to sing is not essential. A Chaplain generally accompanies the Choir on international tours.
