Project Description

Rev Samantha Sheehan has been inducted to the Generation Y and Universities Chaplaincy Ministry based in Leeds.

Samantha’s induction service was hosted by Headingley St Columba’s URC on the evening of Sunday 29 April 2018.

All of those attending, including representatives of the Universities, the Universities Chaplaincy and the Leeds Mission and Care Group, were made very welcome at the service of celebration led by the Moderator Kevin Watson. The sermon was delivered by Revd Carole Marsden and we all wished Samantha well in her new role as she seeks to develop models of how best to connect with and minister to all those aged 18 to 25, whether or not they are university students.

The Leeds URCs look forward to working with Samantha as she sets about taking forward this important new initiative based on many years of work by the URC chaplains who have previously worked as part of the ecumenical team at the universities.
