University of Birmingham - St. Francis Hall

St. Francis Hall is home to the University's multi-faith chaplaincy and is open to all staff and students, whether religious or not. It is located next to the Guild of Students.

The Chaplaincy at St. Francis Hall provides an inclusive space for prayer, meditation, relaxation and worship, among many other activities. It plays an active part in campus life, supporting students and providing a spiritual home at the University. 

The original Chaplaincy building was donated by Edward Cadbury and opened in 1937. The hall was extended to its current size in 1969 and the number of chaplains and faiths represented at the Hall has steadily increased over the years.

From meditation and Friday prayers, to Mass and yoga sessions, the Multi-Faith Chaplaincy hosts many events and activities throughout the year.  They also celebrate and support a wide range of major religious holy days and festival. 

The Chaplaincy works closely with the student-led faith societies at the University organising events.
