The Student's Union is proud that we have a diverse multicultural community and through the Multi-Faith Chaplaincy service, you can access pastoral care, someone to hear you out and spiritual support and advice, whether you consider yourself religious or not. They are open from Monday-Wednesday, and there will be someone in the office ready with a cuppa so feel free to drop in. You can also email ahead and book a confidential appointment.
The Multi-Faith Chaplaincy represents a range of different faiths. Currently there are a range of Christian Chaplains (of various denominations) and Quaker, Muslim, Sikh and Jewish Chaplains, and if your faith isn’t represented the Chaplaincy team may be able to provide guidance about local places of worship and help to put you in touch with other faith leaders from the wider community.
The office is located in the Student's Union and offers a space with sofas and rescources, tea and coffee and a prayer room. The space is also availble to be booked and used, and when it's not booked it is open for you to come and sit at any time. For any bookings or enquiries you can email firstname.lastname@example.org.
As well as our Chaplaincy-led events, there is also faith based societies you can join, or start yourself, giving you many opportunities to meet others within your faith.
