The anthropology consists of 214 poems by 79 poets from over 23 African countries and the Diaspora, each delving into a huge variety of topics from corruption and exile to love.

RELIGION

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.
