Visitors double at University of Plymouth faith centre

Visitors to the University of Plymouth's multi faith centre have doubled since facilities were improved.

The centre is used by students to worship, meditate and socialise.

It moved from Sherwell United Church to Kirby Terrace in September. Staff say the centre is now better equipped and student attendance has increased.

Rev David Evans said that about 60 people use the prayer room compared to about 30 in the old premises.

Rev Evans said the new site offered better social facilities, prayer and meditation rooms and has allowed "significantly more events" to run.

The Chaplaincy started in the 1970s and until September was based at the back of the Sherwell United Church.
