Multi-faith Chaplaincy

Welcome to the Multi-faith Chaplaincy

Whether you are a person of faith, someone who is searching, someone with questions and doubts, or of no faith, you are welcome in our Chaplaincy building and to receive the support of the Chaplaincy team. We are a team of multi-faith Chaplains and between us we cover all of the University sites.

We are here for both students and staff and our quiet room is an ideal space if you are looking for somewhere for quiet and reflection.  

Also inside the Chaplaincy there is a kitchen, a lounge area with a TV, a room you can book for events, information about local places of worship, books and magazines. We do our best to ensure our facilities are warm and welcoming.

The multi-faith team of Chaplains are experienced in offering guidance, advice, support and spiritual direction. What you say to us is kept confidential.

If you are new to Wolverhampton, Walsall or Telford and are looking for a place of worship, there are places listed, many of which current students and staff attend.

If you are a member of a faith not represented amongst our Chaplaincy Team and would like to speak to someone from your faith, please let us know and we will do our best to arrange it.

Throughout the year we celebrate religious festivals from all faiths and you can find information on upcoming events and celebrations on our Events and information page, please check regularly to find out what we'll be celebrating.

God Bless
