Faith and belief

Bradford College is a secular institution, but we have strong connections with a wide variety of faiths and denominations within the local community.

We also have a Faith and Belief Reference Group made up of representatives from a variety of faiths and beliefs.

Members include College staff, students and local faith and belief leaders. As well as the faiths that each of the team represents, they can provide contact details for other local groups and faiths, including places of worship.

There are also a number of religious societies at the Students’ Union at the University of Bradford, which our students can join.            

The College has Unity Spaces set aside for quiet reflection, meditation or prayer. They are used by all of the College community at different times.

We have several Unity Spaces across the college for staff, students and visitors of any faith or none to use. 

The College has a large Islamic population so at some sites we offer Wudu and Istinjah facilities, as well as the option of gender-segregated prayer space.

On Friday afternoons all Unity Spaces become very busy as they are used by Muslim staff and students for Jummah prayer.
