The Great Debate Tour 2015 | Nottingham (UoN x NTU) edition

The Great Debate Tour came back to Nottingham and this year we collaborated with Nottingham Trent for an interesting night of debating! There were some really exciting topics ranging from education to “black music” to politics and voting patterns.

It was an incredible evening of discussion, banter and a touch of controversy and we hope you all took something from it. We’d like to say a huge thank you to The Great Debate team and panellists for coming down and hosting an amazing event with us.

Where to | Worship

religious-symbols_2

Hey freshers, if you’re religious like some of us and wish to continue practicing while in Nottingham then this post is for you. It’s so important to stay true to who you are although it can be challenging when you’re in a completely new environment with strangers all around you. Peer pressure is real and people will try and influence you everyday so inbetween all the experimenting and fun, remember where you came from as well as your morals and home training.

We’ve compiled a list of places where you can go to worship in the local area but ofcourse you’re not limited to this. There may be loads more that we don’t know about so comment and share with us so someone else can be blessed.

The main religious places our members attends are:

Check out the UoN Worship & Prayer page also for loads more. Hope this helps.
