The Chaplaincy runs a range of events throughout the year, from society meetings to lectures and concerts. We hope you enjoy a selection of photos and recordings from these events.
Bristol is a city overflowing with diverse cultures and religious traditions, and the same is true of the University community. To celebrate this diversity, we hosted a series of brief video interviews in spring 2021. In each interview we meet different members of the university community, to find out about their experiences of faith and life on campus and beyond. You can watch the most recent interview here:
In Spring 2020, we started a blog to create a space for members of the Chaplaincy community to share their experiences and reflections of faith and life during the COVID pandemic. For the 2020-21 academic year, we decided to bring the blog back, with a particular focus on religious festivals. Feel free to browse through our archive of blogs, and keep an eye out for new blog posts, which will be uploaded regularly. To check out the blog, click here.
Anne Spencer Memorial Lecture
Every year in the Spring or Summer team, the Chaplaincy team hosts a guest speaker to give a lecture on a topic that they are interested in. Recent lectures include:
- Sami Awad on peacemaking in the Holy Land
- Ruth Hunt on LGBT inclusion and faith
- Linda Woodhead on the rise of 'no religion'
- Kalwant Bhopal on BAME experiences in HE
Unfortunately, in the current context, we don't yet know when the next Anne Spencer Memorial Lecture will be. However, you can access talks from previous years on our Youtube Channel.
