What does the Multifaith Chaplaincy offer?

DatesDrawn from a wide range of religious traditions, we support students of different faiths and none. We organise regular, as well as one off sessions as well as opportunities for you to come and discuss any worries or difficult decisions that you might be facing.

Exploring faith and belief

We can help you reflect on questions about faith and belief, and how they relate to your work and study.

Religious advice and information

The Multifaith Chaplaincy can respond to requests about religious observance and provide information about different religions. Our Places of worship page includes links to SHU student societies, including religious societies, and also lists places of worship.
