University Chaplains

The University Chaplains organise a number of different activities, such as discussion groups, services and weekend retreats.  We are also available for personal counselling and, regardless of your faith, you are welcome to contact us if you would like to talk about your thoughts on life, beliefs, identity, relationships, the loss of a loved one - anything on your mind. 

Two ministers of the Church of Sweden and one pastor from the Mission Covenant Church work together in the office on the 2nd floor of Studentcentrum. You are welcome to contact us for information about activities during the semester or to book an appointment for personal counselling. We can also receive confession and are bound by a vow of secrecy.

We can also help you to get in touch with any other religious groups in Malmö.

Malmö is a very diverse city with people of many faiths and places of worship. Within the city there is a mosque, a synagogue, and Catholic, Baptist, Pentacostal and Evangelical churches, just to name a few.

 

About the Church of Sweden

The Church of Sweden is a national church, open to everyone living in Sweden regardless of nationality. It is a place for church services, meetings and dialogue.

 
The church is a place to celebrate the special occasions in life, but also has importance in filling our everyday needs for peace, reflection, and care. How the church serves as an institution has changed over the 1000 years since its inception, but the task has always been the same: to serve as a meeting place between people, and between people and God.
 
The church buildings, new and old, bear witness to the long historical presence of the Christian faith in our country. Today, the Church of Sweden is an Evangelical Lutheran church. Evangelical for its basis in the Gospel of the Bible: the story of the life, death and resurrection of Jesus. Lutheran because it is founded on the reform work of the 16th century German priest, Martin Luther.
 
More than seven million people living in our country belong to the Church of Sweden. Members are under no obligation to attend church on a regular basis or to be of a strong faith. Membership is an expression of a desire for fellowship with the church. The church is the place where people often turn at festive times of the year and for life's major events, occasions when, in happiness or in sorrow, we mark our fellowship with one another and with God. Baptisms, confirmations, weddings and funerals are occasions when many partake in the Church of Sweden's services. In addition to church services, there are also many other opportunities for people to share their joy, sorrow, faith and doubts with others.
