Faith

The Chaplaincy at City, University of London offers support to everyone, from every faith, belief and culture, and is provided to all staff and students.

Faith

The Chaplaincy team at City, University of London offers support to everyone, from every faith, belief and culture, and is provided to all staff and students at City.

We are located on Level 1 of the Tait Building just before the Students' Union Reception desk.

By coming to City, University of London you are joining a wonderfully diverse community with people studying from all parts of the world. Many are religious and will want to find opportunities to practice their faith alongside their studies.  Indeed, your time at City should be an opportunity to explore all aspects of life, not just your academic studies.

It will be a time when you have questions about identity and some of those ‘big questions’ in life:

  • Who am I?
  • What is my purpose?
  • Is there more to life than ‘this’?

The Chaplaincy at City is a great place to help you explore all these issues and more.

The Chaplaincy Team

The Chaplaincy Team is an extra resource to support you in your time at City. We offer support to everyone, regardless of faith or belief, and we’re here for students and staff alike.

Our multi-faith team has a diverse role to play in the life of City - from offering advice to students and staff, to supporting student faith societies, to celebrating your success at Graduations.

The team comprises the Chaplaincy Co-ordinator, Reverend Ian Worsfold, Imam, Sheikh Musa Admani and five Honorary Chaplains - Reverend David Allen, Reverend Andrew Baughen, Rabbi Gavin Broder, Sister Catherine Cruz and Father Gregory Wellington. Meet the Team and learn how we can support you.

The Chaplaincy Team can provide information on local places of worship and provide contact details for faiths not represented on the team.

City Faith Centre:
Welcoming Every Faith, Belief and Culture

We are really pleased to announce that City Faith Centre is now open for all of City’s people, students and staff alike.

The Centre has been in development for some time and it represents many hours of planning and consulting.  It also represents a significant commitment on behalf of the University to providing different space, for different needs; in this case space for prayer and quiet contemplation.  We want to express our thanks to the University for recognising the importance of this kind of engagement for many of our students and staff.

You are invited to come and see what’s on offer, use the space available and to come and say hello to the Chaplaincy Team.

We also would welcome your feedback on the Centre, what you think works, how you think we could make it even better. Please leave your comments in the box below.

Remember that the Chaplaincy Team is here for you whatever your faith or belief system.  All are welcome!

Registered Faith Societies and other groups can book the Multi-Faith Room for their activities.

View further information about arrangements for Muslim prayer.

We look forward to seeing you.
