The Faith Centre at our Southend Campus is a welcoming place for staff and students to meet, interact and engage in a positive and peaceful manner.
We are here to help and support you. You don’t have to be religious or want to pray to ask for support from us.
Find out where you can get support from our Faith Centre. Please see the main University of Essex events page for details of all events including those linked to the Faith Centre.
We have a number of chaplains and faith representatives who offer their time to the Centre:
Your assistant chaplains, based on the second floor of the Gateway Building, are always happy to welcome you to the Faith Centre when we are on duty.
We are here to listen to you. Whatever the subject, we can provide a safe space in which you can share your thoughts. We can offer signposting to other helpful people around the campus, as well as spiritual signposts to external faith communities across Southend on Sea.
If study or life is getting to you why not drop into the Faith Centre where we can provide a homely, colourful space to chill and chat. We will promise to always have something sweet to keep you going during your day! Of course, we are here to pray with you and for you, and those you love, if you wish.
Please let us know what else we could offer that will help you spiritually, emotionally and mentally during term time, and also over the holiday if you are staying in Southend. If we are not in please contact us through our email addresses, or via text 07859911997.
Looking for a local place of worship? Our Chaplains are happy to signpost you, whatever your faith. Just drop in, or email us.
