Hi. My name is Ben and I’m the new Chaplain at KGV.
You may be wondering what a Chaplain is (it is a good question). A Chaplain is someone who is there to listen and support students and staff with whatever is going on in their life. Sometimes that can be chatting about those deeper life questions, sometimes that is a moan about a situation, or sometimes it's that you just need to hear a pretty ropey dad joke to cheer yourself up. I’m a curate in the Church of England but I’m here to listen to anyone, whether you have a faith or not.
Other things about me: I’m married with two young girls. I have a massive phobia of crabs (most crustaceans freak me out). I support Manchester United. When I was at college I wanted to be a lifeguard in Hawaii (things don’t always work out the way you planned).
If you ever see me say “hello” and I’m always available to have a chat."
