Spiritual and Faith Support


A chaplain is a leader in their own faith but who works closely with other faiths. You can talk in confidence to any of our four chaplains about matters of religion, or any other worries or issues you may have. They are here to help students and staff of all faiths or none, and one of the team will be available every Monday during term, or you can email or call them at any time, including university vacations.

Faith room on campus

Our faith room, in the Faccenda student centre, is a quiet place where students and staff of any faith, or none, can reflect or pray.

Religious societies

Christian staff and students have their own society which welcomes members of all faiths. We can help you set one up for your own particular faith if there is enough interest.

Places of worship

The village of Edgmond, a short stroll from the university, has Anglican and Methodist churches and nearby Newport has a Roman Catholic church, all of which welcome students as worshippers. Our borough of Telford and Wrekin is culturally diverse and you will find places of worship for most faiths.
