The Chaplain provides Ecumenical and Spiritual Life to the University community, with the assumption that the students are already members of churches which will continue to nurture their spiritual life through on-campus worship groups or structures.

The Chaplain also facilitates the following activities on campus:

Starting a Cell Group – The chaplain will not facilitate the starting of new churches, but the formation of cell groups through which churches with registered offices in Zimbabwe will be allowed to operate on campus.

Conducting Meetings on campus
– Meetings are to be held during lunchtimes or after all lectures of the day have ended. Permission should be sought from the NUST administration through the Chaplain’s office before outside groups are invited to participate in meetings on Campus.

Outreach Programmes
– A Cell Group desiring to travel on an outreach programme should submit an application form a month before the trip for approval, to make necessary travel arrangement. The Chaplain works closely with the Students Representative Council in such student-related trips.
Student Welfare Fund – The Chaplaincy mobilizes resources for the underprivileged students’ education and welfare. 

Giving Meaning to Life on Campus – The Chaplaincy offers spiritual counselling and advisory services to the student body and to members of staff. It provides a link between the University and the generality of the religious community
