Faith

Here at NTU Faith, we’re committed to celebrating the rich cultural diversity of our students and are advocates for the relevance of faith and belief in our global society. We provide a range of innovative activities to engage you in conversations about faith and help you discover the diversity of beliefs present in our community. We maintain the prayer rooms on campus and coordinate opportunities to connect with Nottingham’s diverse faith communities.

We also offer you the opportunity to explore and celebrate faith-based festivals, and widen your experience of religions by visiting different places of worship. Through interfaith dialogues, we seek to build lasting friendships and a culture of understanding.

Chaplaincy

Our Chaplaincy team is led by our coordinating chaplain Rev’d Dr Richard Davey who is a Christian Anglican priest. The team seeks to provide opportunities for social encounter that can build caring, supportive communities, whether through our online ‘cuppa with the chaplains’ or other social events. We also offer pastoral support, by walking alongside you at times of difficulty and worry, particularly in moments of bereavement and transition. We also provide opportunities for prayer, meditation or reflection – this may be through our weekly guided meditation, Catholic Mass, or other prayer spaces.

The Chaplaincy team has Jewish, Muslim, Catholic and Methodist chaplains, and a chaplain based at our Brackenhurst Campus. Email our team to get in touch with the chaplains.

We have Muslim prayer rooms across our campuses:

  • City Campus – DiCE building
  • Clifton Campus – Student Support Services building
  • Brackenhurst Campus – Pippin building

If you would like to attend the Friday Jummah Prayers at our City or Clifton campus, please click here to book your place. Spaces are limited so be sure to book your place early.

It’s an exciting time, and we’re also making great progress through our Faith Ambassadors Project – an initiative that’s promoting the value of faith across NTU and the wider community.
