World faiths

We want to help you make contact with your own community of faith. You will find details below of the main world faiths, but the Chaplaincy Team will be pleased to support you and help you make contact, where possible, with others who share your faith, whatever your religion.

Do let us help where we can.

Everyone is welcome at our Chaplaincy!
