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.
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
New for the academic year 2017/18 is ‘City Faith Centre’, situated on the first level of Tait Building just before you reach the Students’ Union and Courtyard Café.
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.
We are pleased to offer a Multi-Faith Room for individual and group use, a Quiet Reflection Lounge offering a chance for individuals to pray, meditate, reflect, or simply calm the nerves before that important assessment or exam. In addition, we also offer dedicated prayer rooms for Muslim prayers. If you have any feedback please put your comments in the feedback section at the bottom of this page. All comments are welcomed.
We have a simple set of guidelines for those using the space, to ensure everyone can access City Faith Centre freely and with respect. Click here to see the City Faith Centre and Muslim Prayer Room Guidelines.
We look forward to seeing you.
