Interfaith Week takes place from 12 - 19 November every year and aims to unite communities of religious and non-religious beliefs and raise awareness of the rich diversity of faith communities across the UK.
At UCLan, we have a number of religious and spiritual societies, all led by students and supported by the Students' Union. These societies range from Buddhism prayer and meditation, Christian Union and Islamic Society. Anyone is welcome to joining these societies – why don’t you take a look! Visit our Societies page and Select the 'Faith and Culture' filter to see the latest societies. If you can't find one that matches your needs and beliefs, why not consider setting one up here.
Along with societies, you can find a community at UCLan's Oasis Faith and Spirituality Centre. Oasis offers a place of peace, friendship and faith for all students and colleagues, regardless of faith and religion.
