Faith in the Community

Nottingham is a city with a diverse religious community, where multiple faiths are both practised and celebrated.  Working closely with religious leaders and advisors, places of worship and local community groups, NTU Faith is building a stronger, inclusive and knowledgeable city for the benefit of our students, staff and communities.

We recognise the critical role faith organisations and leaders play in community engagement and highlighting social causes.  As such, we help to shape their work by championing and showcasing the rich cultures of our city and beyond.

Our students and staff play an active role in the community, from volunteering in cafes, to working in schools and assisting with food banks.

Our work

Our students and staff play an active role in the community, from volunteering in cafes, to working in schools and assisting with food banks.

Some of our recent work within the community includes:

  • Attending community conferences on hate crime by faith organisations, such as the Liberal Jewish Synagogue and Nottingham Citizens
  • Volunteering with the joint Muslim/Jewish charity project, SaSh Kitchen, to provide a hot meal for those in need
  • Supporting social justice events aimed at tackling social injustice and inequality, such as The Windrush Scandal driven by the Pilgrim Church
  • Visiting the Holocaust Museum in Mansfield on Holocaust Memorial Day
  • Assisting the Muslim-based Himmah charity to deliver its extensive food bank project.

By showing compassion and sharing meaningful experiences, we are able to introduce members of the wider community to different faiths, ideas and viewpoints. NTU Faith’s work will continue to represent all faiths and celebrate our multi-cultural city.
