Bournemouth contains places of worships for many denominations. The town has several examples of Victorian church architecture, including St Stephen’s church.
The town is also the home of the Bournemouth Reform Synagogue, formerly known as Bournemouth New Synagogue. It is a Reform Jewish synagogue with over 700 members. There is also the architecturally notable Bournemouth Hebrew Congregation.
AUB also has a multi-faith Chaplaincy shared with Bournemouth University. It is available to support students of all faiths and of none and it affirms and celebrates diversity. The Quiet Room and the Islamic Prayer Room are in regular use by staff and students. If you feel like talking to a Chaplain, Bill Merrington, the Senior Chaplain, is happy to be contacted. You can also be put in touch with local faith communities and places of worship and join a group for prayer, study or fellowship.
