I've been wondering since the Wikipedia page says the uni is, "the only ecumenical university in Europe its work has been shaped by Christian principles" if a lot of religious followers attended the university?
Does the number of religious followers outweigh non-believers?
Do they encourage rituals like praying too?
Does religion play a huge role?
Doesn't bother me, just curious. Thank you!

Hi, Hope graduate here!

As far a religion goes,it does have a presence within the university, but I never found the religious aspect to force itself upon me. It is also very multicultural/multi-faith.

I know what you mean, it sounds like you have to pray before lesson. But this certainly isn't the case, so if you don't want the religious aspect of the uni, you won't get it. Super simple stuff.
Come fresher's week, you will have to go to this weird thing in the chapel, where loads of high up teachers wear their gowns and you feel like you're in Harry Potter, and Graduation is in one of Liverpool's two main Cathedrals. But thats about it really :-)
