On Sundays you will find many students at both the 10.30am and 6pm services. To find out more about how Sunday services are currently working click here.

From Sunday 26th September – Sunday 24th October we’ll be hosting meals for students after the 6pm service. The meals will be an opportunity to meet fellow students, as well as people from the wider church community. We cater for celiac/gluten free and vegan diets.

We want to be a community that is hungry for God and for his word. We host midweek student small groups (Hungry groups) every Wednesday evening at the Risbridger’s home. We eat, pray, play games, and study the Bible together. We’ll meet all together in the first term, with smaller groups branching off from the second term onwards. You don’t need to register in advance.

We encourage students to link up with other people in the church community. Some students meet up one-to-one with an older Christian who helps them grow as a follower of Jesus.

Twice a year, we spend a weekend together; one in Southampton, and one (hopefully) somewhere more exotic. These are great opportunities to deepen friendships with one another and grow in our relationship with God. We also have regular events for young adults, both students and post-study survivors.
