We offer confidential pastoral support to all students and staff, whatever their religious convictions. If you need someone to talk to, you are welcome to drop in at the Faith and Spirituality Centre or contact us to arrange a meeting at a place and time to suit you. It's free, independent and confidential. You do not need to have a religious faith in order to make use of this support.
Many people feel that they want to pray but don't know how to begin. As well as support through listening and informal counselling, we are also able to pray with those who wish it.
We can help to arrange religious services to support you in times of crisis, change and celebration. These include:
Is there a concern you would like us to pray about? There are regular services organised during term time, and we welcome requests for prayer. If the matter is confidential please say so when you contact us and no names will be used in services.
Requests for prayer, whether for yourself or on behalf of someone for whom you are concerned, may be left on the board in the Quiet Room or email. These petitions will be included in the intercessions which are made during morning prayer each week.
Morning prayer takes place each week on Thursdays from 8.30am–8.50am during term time in the Quiet Room (MB0032) or Faith and Spirituality Centre Office (MB0031). It consists of set prayers, a Bible reading and prayers for the University, world and those who are in need. All students and staff are welcome to attend.
The University faith adviser is available for listening, support, information and advice at weekly drop-in sessions on different campuses.
Student Services Centre in the Yorkon Building (ground floor), 12.00noon–2.00pm on Mondays during term time.
