 بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

May Peace Be Upon You All

 

WELCOME TO YOUR NEW BRISOC FAMILY :)

Here are our 5 main aims for the year 20-21, which by God’s will, will guide and fuel our direction as a society, as well as giving you as a member, a better understanding of your new family 

  1. To facilitate a communal space for all Muslim students to cultivate our shared values as firm believers in God and His Messenger , by focusing on soul-nurturing programmes, personal development, and mentorshipscheme
  2. To equip, develop and inspire our members to think critically, by empowering them to become well-grounded in all aspects of life, including the important Islamic sciences
  3. To showcase our beautiful religion and way of life to the wider Bristol community by engaging in beneficial and impactful community wellbeing projects 
  4. To increase engagement with our members by providing you with diverse and engaging social, educational and welfare programmes consistently throughout the year
  5. To continue engagement with core challenges the British Muslims are facing, by creating politically conscious and engaged students on campus

If you are a non-Muslim and want to learn anything about our beautiful religion and way of life, we are here to help and offer you some guidance from its sources. So, whoever you are, Brisoc is here to cultivate you.

 

WHERE ARE THE PRAYER ROOMS LOCATED?

The prayer room for both Brothers and Sisters is located at 21 Woodland Road - a building just behind the Sports Centre and the Arts Faculty, on the corner of St Michael's Park and Woodland Rd. It can be quite hard to locate this building, hence we have produced a simple video to help you navigate to the location.  

 

 

The prayer rooms are open 24/7 and are managed by the Univeristy Multifaith Chaplaincy. Please email multifaith-chaplaincy@bristol.ac.uk with your UoB Card Number to request access.

We hold our weekly Friday (Jummah) prayers in Carpenter Room, SU building. Due to the current pandemic, the building is shut for public use and hence we have suspended our Friday prayers until further notice. We humbly request that you utilise the local mosques for the time being and adhere to any necessary Covid-19 related guidelines.  

 

ARE THERE ANY REGULAR EVENTS WE COULD JOIN?

In light of Covid-19, we are having to rethink how we provide our regular face-to-face events for our members. Details of our future events will be released on our social media very soon.

 

WHO ARE THE COMMITTEE MEMBERS?

Please visit https://www.brisoc.org/ and look out for the committee section. We are here to serve you so don’t hesitate to get in touch with anyone for anything at any time during the year. Of course as a student-led society, our capacity to help is limited to some extent, but we can always signpost you in the right direction.

 

USEFUL RESOURCES

We have compiled together some useful information in a small pamphlet which can be accessed here. FOSIS's virtual fresher packs are also available for you to download by clicking here
