Multi-faith Chaplaincy

Welcome to the Multi-faith Chaplaincy

The University Chaplaincy supports the spiritual, cultural and pastoral needs of students and staff. Online and in person we meet with people for one to one support, host events to build understanding between communities and develop friendships, and offer advice and training in relation to religion and faith. Our Chaplaincy centre on Molineux Street offers hospitality to everyone, of all faiths and none, who simply want to drop in and have a chat or find a quiet place amidst a busy university. There is a lounge, kitchen and meeting room bookable for events that are in accordance with the ethos of the Chaplaincy and the University, student bookings are given priority. 

We also offer private and confidential conversations and support online, and over the phone. Chaplains attend events in churches, mosques, gurdwaras and other community venues. We announce these visits as and when they are due to occur.

Also, check out what Student Faith Societies are currently running via the Students' Union.
