Faith Centre

Our University is proud of its vibrant and diverse multicultural community and recognises the importance that faith, belief and spirituality play in the lives of many people.

Welcome to the Faith Centre

You don’t have to be religious to find a warm welcome with us.

We run a mix of specifically religious events, and also provide space to help recharge your spiritual batteries.

You can find our events listed on the events calendar.

We have full- or part-time chaplains and advisors for many religions, and we can put you in touch with others. There are also SU faith societies ready to welcome you into a ready-made community.

There are a number of COVID-19 protocols in place for users of the Faith Centre – risk assessments will be agreed when the space is booked. We’re happy to meet one-to-one in person or online.
