Introduction



If you consider yourself to be a person of Faith then we understand that your Faith matters to you. We want you to know that it matters to us too.

We hope that you will feel valued and respected for your faith and that appropriate spiritual support and facility is available to you should you need it.

Facilities



A Chapel is situated in Middleton Hall below the Arts Café. It is regularly used by the Chapel Choir and Chaplains hold services and groups throughout the week.

A Muslim Prayer Room is available in Unit 4c on the Newland Science Park adjacent to the Campus and The Courtyard Accommodation.

Chaplaincy Team



The Chaplaincy Team is a voluntary group made up of local and regional faith Leaders. They provide a place of welcome and support to Students and Staff, whatever their faith or belief system. Everyone is welcome. They also bring a wealth of experience and expertise which broadens the pastoral support we are able to offer our Students.

They provide a listening ear and physical and emotional space to chat, reflect and if appropriate, prayer. Whoever you are and whatever your needs, you will find the Chaplains approachable and ready to support you.
