Faith and Community

The Faith and Community service is here to support Edge Hill University students and staff of all faiths and none, helping to create a welcoming community on campus. We offer:

  • pastoral guidance, support and encouragement
  • information and advice about faith and the issues it raises
  • bereavement support
  • prayer if you request it
  • signposting to other sources of help
  • links to local faith communities
  • chaplaincy facilities
  • meetings and events
  • conversation and opportunities to make friends with like-minded people

We respect the beliefs of others and actively encourage discussion, exploration, and understanding of different faiths, practices, backgrounds, and cultural traditions. Edge Hill University chaplains are not here to try to persuade you to join a particular faith, or to convert you to a different religion.
