The Organ Scholar is John Clark-Maxwell. He can be contacted via Organ.Scholar@seh.ox.ac.uk.
University is a great time to explore the big questions of meaning and purpose in life. Please email the Chaplain if you would like to investigate ways of doing this. For example, St Aldates Church has invited anyone from Teddy Hall to come along to its Alpha Course (Tuesdays 7-9pm, 21 October to 9 December 2014, with free evening meal each week). The Alpha Course is widely used by all Christian denominations and highly commended by the Archbishop of Canterbury (‘British Christianity’s biggest success story’ - The Independent).
The Catholic Chaplaincy representative is Catherine Canning (firstname.lastname@example.org).
