Meet the team
Here are the details of the Chaplaincy and Faith Advisory Team at City, University of London
Revd Ian Worsfold
T: +44 (0)20 7040 4219
My name is Ian Worsfold and, as a Methodist minister, I represent the interests of the Free Churches as part of the Chaplaincy Team. I will be in City 3 days a week and I'm happy to meet up with students and staff to listen and talk about any issues that concern you. You don't need to be of a particular faith for me to listen - or of any faith for that matter! I look forward to welcoming you and getting to know you.
Sheikh Musa Admani
T: +44 (0)20 7040 4218
"Welcome to City, University of London. My name is Musa Admani and I am the Imam. My interest, and my job, is to assist Muslim students' personal development and spiritual needs. In addition I can assist you in addressing private and sensitive issues that may distract you from taking full advantage of the opportunities offered by City.
I am here to support you through the entire period you are with us in City. I want to ensure that you are spiritually stronger and excelling in your academic studies. To that end, I have worked with Muslim students and City administration, to ensure that your basic needs for mandatory prayers, ablutions facilities and cleanliness requirements are met at City, as far as necessary and practical.
You can always contact me by telephone or email if you need clarity on some issue or you just want someone to listen to you. On Thursday afternoons during term time I will sit in the open space outside the Careers Centre between 14:00 and 16:00 and look forward to talking with you.
I hope you enjoy being part of the City, University of London community while you study here. In doing so you will help to make a richer environment, enhancing education and providing an active example of living and working together."
Revd Andrew Baughen (Anglican Chaplain)
T: +44 (0)7515 880 432
"A warm welcome to City, University of London. I am the Vicar of St James Clerkenwell, a local Anglican church (www.jc-church.org).I work at the University on Thursdays but am also available though the week to meet up. If you're investigating Christianity and would like to chat through questions of faith or learn more about applying faith to daily life then send me a text or an email and I'll make contact with you.
I can also let you know about social events including student Sunday lunches in the local area and weekend cultural visits organised by chaplaincy and local churches to help you meet others and explore all that London has to offer."
Revd David Allen (Anglican Chaplain)
T: +44 (0)20 7251 0706
David is the Vicar of St Clement's, a local Anglican Church just across Goswell Road from the main City site. He is most often in City on Tuesday afternoons but is also available at other times to talk or meet up. David is happy to talk about any matter of faith, spirituality and life; he has a long experience of supporting people of all ages and backgrounds.
David's Church, St Clement's, is traditional in style but very welcoming with lots of local people of all ages and many different cultures.
Rabbi Gavin Broder
T: +44 (0)7811 286664
Popularly known as Rav Gav, London Region's Jewish Student Chaplain for over 14 years is also the former Chief Rabbi of Ireland.
Rabbi Broder works closely with the Jewish Society (Jsoc) and is regularly found giving 'Lunch & Learns' on campus.
He represents Jewish causes within City and is available for one on one consultation where needed to Jewish students of all backgrounds and affiliations.
Father Gregory Wellington
T: +44 (0)20 7040 4212
Fr Gregory is Assistant Priest at St Katharine's Greek Orthodox Church (Ecumenical Patriarchate) in Friern Barnet, but since his ministry is non-stipendiary, he also holds a full time post at City, University of London within the Student and Academic Services Directorate.
Fr Gregory is a contact point for Eastern Orthodox Christians based at City and is available to answer questions from people of faith and none about the Greek Orthodox Church. However, due to the demands of his administrative post at City, he may not always be able to see students and staff in person on an appointment basis, but instead may redirect enquiries to local parishes for further support, as appropriate in each case.
This blend of roles is important in addressing the needs of the community. It also enables City to demonstrate its commitment to multicultural values. Work is ongoing to build the Team and increases its diversity.
