Local faith provision

The City of Salford has many faith communities, places of worship and cultural centres close to the University of Salford. Our Chaplains have strong connections with some of the local faith communities and are happy to chat with you about different options - visit our Faith page for our Chaplains' contact details.

We have created a list of local community places of worship below. Please note:

  • This list of local community places of worship is not exhaustive: it does not cover all faiths and denominations
  • Listed organisations are not affiliated with the University of Salford or the Faith Centre
  • We cannot officially recommend other places of worship and ask that you use your own judgement when contacting and using any third-party service
  • We advise that you check current opening hours directly with each local provision to find out up to date information before attending

If you would like help finding local services not listed here, please email faithcentre@salford.ac.uk and we will try to signpost you to local provision.

You can speak to askUS or use Report & Support if you have any concern about an organisation’s practices. If you are concerned about a worshipping community, please talk to chaplain or email faithcentre@salford.ac.uk.
