Fresher’s week events

A very warm welcome to our new students from the Chaplaincy team!

We’re looking forward to meeting you, and we’ve laid on some special events for Fresher’s Week, if you’re feeling at a loose end…

Tea & Toast

Tea & Toast at the Faith Spaces at Park, Pittville and Oxstalls and at FCH Chapel on Sun 15th Sept 2.30 – 4.30pm.

A chance to sample the great free hospitality offered by the chaplaincy team and meet others over a cuppa.

International Welcome Event

International Welcome Event beginning with tea and cake, at FCH Chapel on Sun 15th Sept 5.00 – 8.00pm For all international, EU and Erasmus students.

Come and Create

Come and create at the Chapel, Park Faith Space & Oxstalls Faith Spaces on Tues 17th & Thurs 19th Sept from 12 noon – 2.00pm and at Pittville Faith Space on Thurs 19th Sept from 4.00pm – 6.30pm.

Drop in for a cuppa, paint a mug, do some craft if you like or just chill.

Fresher’s Fayre and Chill Out Space

Freshers Fayre and Chill Out Space on Weds Sept 18th 11.00 – 3.00pm.

You’ll find us in the tent at Freshers Fayre, and at a more relaxed gazebo outside.

And if you need a bit of quiet after the excitement of Freshers Fayre, head down to the Park Faith Space and help yourself to free drinks, toast and mug painting.

All week

All week – come and paint a mug and then have a free drink out of it: at the Chapel and the Faith Space on each campus.

Two more events for the following week:

Walk in the Park

A Walk in the Park on Tues Sept 22nd 12.30 – 1.15pm: meet at Park Faith Space.

Missing your pets?  Join chaplains and badly behaved dogs for a short walk in a local park. This is a weekly activity – the following week we start from FCH Chapel.

World Café

World Café at FCH Chapel on Weds Sept 25th 7.00 – 9.00pm.
