The Multifaith Chaplaincy welcomes all students and staff regardless of their faith or religious beliefs. We are based in the Octagon Centre, where our Common Room and Quiet Room are open for anybody to use.
We offer three main types of opportunities to students:
1. Individual support when life is difficult. A member of the chaplaincy team is available on site between 12 noon and 2pm Monday – Friday during Semester. You can drop-in at those times or make an appointment to speak to someone – staff details are on www.sheffield.ac.uk/ssid/chaplaincy. You do not need to have a faith or religious identity to speak to a chaplain.
2. Opportunities for students from different religious and cultural backgrounds to learn about each other and themselves. We run discussion groups, weekends away, chaplaincy in the pub, a tandem learning programme, and events (such as ‘Women and Faith’ or ‘LGBT+ and Faith’) with the Students’ Union.
3. Faith-specific activities. We have team members from a range of world faiths who can help with faith-specific questions, including finding a local place of worship. There are also opportunities to practice or learn about your faith; these include Buddhist chanting, Christian prayer and worship, Quaker meetings, Quran classes, and religious festivals or holy days.
To find out more about the Chaplaincy you can call in, email, or see our social media. Like us on Facebook or join our mailing list to make sure you don’t miss out on our events.
Opening hours during the University semester:
Mon-Thurs 9.30am to 5pm, Fri 9.30am to 2pm.
A chaplain will be available 12 noon-2pm each day.
