Selwyn College maintains its identity as an Anglican institution through formal links on its Governing Board and through less formal links with the neighbouring All Saints’ parish. We sustain a strong connection with All Saints' Church, which forms part of Selwyn's campus as well as being the only church on University grounds. Historically the Vicar of All Saints' has also functioned as Selwyn's Chaplain.
The current Chaplain is the Rev Michael Wallace. He provides support to the Welfare Team and to members of the College. The Chaplain also conducts the five or six church services we hold each year. These are not compulsory events but they are nevertheless well attended. They are welcomed opportunities for the whole College community to gather and reflect at important moments.
Finally, a point of distinction: no other college at Otago has a dedicated chaplain.
