Multi Faith

Blackpool Sixth are committed to supporting students of any faith and none. We do this through a mixture of regular and annual events. These events are intended to:

  • encourage students to explore their spirituality
  • reflect upon the awesomeness of creation
  • meet and chat with people from diverse areas of life
  • contemplate the uniqueness of our existence
  • discuss the big questions and dilemmas of life

We will endeavour to do this through the following facilities and activities

Multi-faith area: the college has a designated area for prayer or quiet reflection

Blackpool Sixth Equality and Diversity Group: students are represented on the committee that oversees faith issues in the college

World Religion Week: the college celebrates all faiths during this significant week in January

Faith Group: a group of students who have faith, are just curious or wish to embrace the diverse life of college meet on a regular basis.

Festival of Lessons and Carols: an exceptional event in the College’s calendar. The service takes place at St Chad’s Church, Poulton-le-Fylde

Student weekly: students are continually informed on a regular basis of different religious events that occur.
