Our Chaplaincy fosters a culture of service to others and is an important source of support and connection for our students.

Reverend Gareth Walters – Head Chaplain

Gareth Walters

Reverend Gareth Walters was appointed to the position of Head Chaplain at King’s College in March 2020. 

Rev. Walters will be familiar to many in the wider King’s community having served for seven years as Assistant Chaplain with Reverend Warner Wilder from 2009 to 2016.

Rev. Walters' chief responsibility is the oversight of our Chaplaincy, the pastoral care of the wider College community and the College's engagement with the charities it supports. 

We look forward to announcing Reverend Walters' licensing and commissioning as the new Head Chaplain in due course.
