Practising your religion

We have a strong history of diversity in faith and culture, and welcome students from a wide variety of backgrounds.


Our Chaplaincy is made up of Christian (Catholic, Church in Wales (Anglican), Methodist, and Eastern Christian), Hindu and Muslim chaplains. We also have a Jewish chaplain who is chaplain to all of the universities in the south west of the UK.

They work alongside other faith communities in Cardiff, welcoming students from all parts of the world, regardless of their nationality, religion, gender or orientation, and are committed to encouraging discussion between students of different faiths and backgrounds.

The individual chaplaincies that make up our Chaplaincy are places of friendship, hospitality, prayer and support. They all offer opportunities for students to relax and explore faith and spirituality.

They each provide advice and care, support student groups and organise regular programmes of worship, lectures and social justice outreach, as well as fun events open to all. Our diverse chaplaincies are at the service of the University community helping students to settle in and meet new people.

Finding others who share your faith

There are various religious societies in the Students’ Union representing different faiths which you can join including, the Islamic, Jewish and Christian Societies. For more information, please see the clubs and societies webpage.

Places of worship for all major religions and faiths can be found around the city. The Chaplaincy has information about all the churches, synagogues, temples and other places of worship around Cardiff.
