The Otago Tertiary Chaplaincy Trust Board (OTCTB) exists to provide Chaplaincy services on an ecumenical basis to the University of Otago and the Otago Polytechnic. The Board was established in 1963, with the first Chaplain being appointed in 1964. The Board meets monthly and has representatives from a range of Churches, from the University of Otago and Otago Polytechnic, from the Students’ Association of both institutions, and from the Combined Christian Groups.
The current Ecumenical Chaplaincy team is comprised of two full-time Chaplains ; Rev Greg Hughson and Mr Steve Downey, along with Volunteer Chaplaincy Assistant Mrs Lyn Meinders. The Ecumenical Chaplaincy team works in close partnership with the Otago Catholic Tertiary Chaplaincy team comprised of Father Mark Chamberlain, Mrs Amy Armstrong and Mr Paul Armstrong.
