Multifaith Chaplaincy


The Chaplaincy works with students and staff of any faith or belief.  We have full time chaplains from the Church of England and the Roman Catholic Church and a part-time Muslim Chaplain.  Our Chaplaincy & Weddings Coordinator and Interfaith & Religious Diversity Intern also work part-time.

Everyone is welcome at our services and events and we are available to see all members of the College – students and staff, of any faith or none.

We are here to help you, regardless of your beliefs, but if you are looking to speak to someone from your own faith, we will do our best to put you in touch with the right person. By working very closely with the SU Faith Societies, we are able to put you in touch with them and many other local faith groups. 

Ramadhan 2020

Ramadhan will begin on the evening of Thursday 23 April and will end on the evening of Saturday 23 May. During this time, many Muslims will be taking part in one of the five pillars of Islam known as fasting, which means they won't eat or drink between dawn and sunset.

Our College Muslim Chaplain, Nisar Shaikh, has provided a poem and a range of guidance for students and colleagues who will be fasting and worshipping whilst the social distancing regulations to stay at home are in place.
