Multi-faith chaplaincy

Multi-faith chaplaincy

The Multifaith Chaplaincy Team consists of representatives and advisers from a wide range of faiths and belief systems. It exists to serve the spiritual and religious needs of everyone studying, working or associated with the university community of Sheffield Hallam and to promote mutual understanding and respect amongst people of different religious faiths and none, and across all cultures.

We do this by:

  • creating a vibrant environment of welcome, friendship and mutual respect
  • offering pastoral care, support and spiritual guidance both from a religious and a non-religious perspective
  • providing space for worship, reflection and dialogue

Support for staff and students

The Multifaith Chaplaincy is available to all faiths and none, and to all students and staff.

The Team consists of 15 advisers from religious and Humanist backgrounds and offers a wide range of weekly, annual and one - off activities. The chaplaincy is also involved in cross university projects addressing wider issues of social justice and environmental concern.

If you need to talk you can come and speak to one of our advisers who will be able to support you with a wide range of issues. Find out more here (PDF, 56.9KB)and get in touch at to arrange an appointment.
