The Prayer Space

The Greenwich Peninsula Chaplaincy was established in 2003 to serve the spiritual and other needs of people who live in, work in and visit the Greenwich Peninsula. The hub of the chaplaincy’s activities is the Prayer Space which is situated behind the Emirates Cable Car building. A team of work place chaplains are based in the Prayer Space and there is usually a chaplain available during opening hours.

The Prayer Space is available for individuals to use for prayer and reflection; for faith communities to use for their own worship, prayer and other events; as a base for the chaplains; for dialogue between people of different faiths; and for community events and community development.

People of different faiths involved in the chaplaincy do together everything which everyone can in good conscience do together.

The Chaplaincy has a team of welcomers to welcome groups and individuals to the Prayer Space.

The building contains the Prayer Space, an office, an ablutions room (for foot-washing) and a disabled toilet.
