Chaplaincy to the University of Leicester

Explore faith

Question mark symbolThe chaplaincy is a safe space to explore matters of faith and belief. Whether you know nothing about Christianity or you've gone to church your entire life, it's a place where you can ask questions and pursue your own faith journey.

Get in touch with us if you'd like to talk with one of our chaplains.


It's rare to find time to think about the big questions of life - about faith, reason and God.

That's why we run Alpha. It's a series of series of sessions exploring the big questions of life and the basics of Christian faith. Alpha is run all over the world in churches, chaplaincies, schools, businesses and prisons; it is recognised, reputable and a safe space to explore.

Alpha is for anyone who is curious to explore the big questions of life: Why are we here? What’s the world for? What happens when we die? We’ve got a theory that some questions are too important not to ask, and University is a great time and place to ask them.

It's perfect for spiritual seekers and sceptics alike. No judgment, no brainwashing, just ask your own questions and make up your own mind.

At Alpha, everyone's opinion matters. There's no pressure to say anything, and there's nothing you can't say.

If you're interested in joining our next Alpha, let us know and we'll be sure to send you an invite. Of course, if you're not sure, you can always come to the first session to try it out.
