The University of Plymouth Multi-Faith Chaplaincy is for all staff and students: those with a faith, searching for faith, or just wanting to meet people. Email for further information or visit the Chaplaincy on Facebook.

Christians in Science (CiS) is an international network of those concerned with the relationship between science and Christian faith, open to scientists, teachers, students and all those with an interest in this dialogue. The common misperception that there is always conflict between science and faith can be abused by those with anti-Christian or anti-science agendas. In reality science has always been the domain of many committed Christians and CiS exists to support such Christians. Student membership is free for a year. CiS on Facebook

CiS South West is a local group that aims to connect and support anyone with an interest in science and faith in Devon and Cornwall. We aim to run events two or three times a year and support Christians working in or studying science locally. Visit for further information.
