Faith Space

Our University welcomes people from all faiths and none.

We have made provision for a faith space in Augustine House for the use of students and staff. This is located just outside the security gates at the side entrance of the building.

It is a space for prayer, meditation and reflection and it is not designated for workshops, society events, or staff meetings. Please respect your fellow users and keep silence. Be aware of the religious sensibilities of others, which may be very different to your own.

Availability and access

Faith Spaces are Ahg.28a and Ahg.26e - Please book via chaplaincy@canterbury.ac.uk 7 days ahead.
Faith Space 1 (Ahg.28a)      Bookable for communal prayers or worship by any group, of up to 10 people. All requests for booking must be made at least seven days in advance to chaplaincy@canterbury.ac.uk.
