WE WELCOME YOU
At the core of our student work is the belief that every student should have the opportunity to hear the Gospel in a way that they can understand, and that every Christian student should be trained, equipped, and released to share the Gospel in a format that compliments their personality and gifting. The only way we can achieve this vision is if we come together as a community where we yearn to worship God, seek authentic discipleship, freely give ourselves to serve the church, and create a culture where we live outside of our comfort zones.
Our Student Pastor, Will, and a team of volunteers are here to support and encourage our local student community.
On Sundays we gather together with the wider church community to worship God and learn together.
After our evening service, all students are welcome to join us at the Brewhouse pub or drop into the Church Centre for Sundaes on Sundays: ice cream, drinks and games! This is a great time to chill out, meet some other students, and enjoy the student community as a whole.
These are our weekly discipleship groups, led by students, for students. The groups meet on Zoom on the first week of the month and in person at church on the second and third weeks. On the fourth Wednesday of the month we hold Student Night Live, a service for students.
We invite you to check out Psalm 63 then join us at SixtyThree: bi-monthly gatherings dedicated to worshipping Jesus and praying. These evenings don't have an agenda, just putting time aside to spend time with him, allowing him to speak to us and reveal his power. Upcoming SixtyThree gatherings can be found on the SixtyThree Facebook page.
STUDENT W/E AWAY
There's something significant in setting aside a few days just to seek and worship God. While sometimes it can be difficult to focus or gain perspective during the daily grind, giving a weekend to God frequently brings clarity and revelation. It's also really fun!
International students, international postgraduates, international scholars and their families are very welcome to join us at any of our Sunday services, whether you have a religion or not.
If you are a Christian International student and are wanting to know more about the Bible then the Philip Project is for you!
If you are an international undergraduate or masters student, you are welcome to join one of the student small groups or, if you are doing a PhD, postgraduate studies or research, you might prefer to join our 20s & 30s Community.
I'D LIKE TO CHAT ABOUT SOMETHING THAT'S GOING ON IN MY LIFE. WHO CAN I TALK TO?
Get in touch with our Student Pastor, Will - you can contact him by email or introduce yourself at church!
HOW CAN I FIND OUT MORE ABOUT THE CHRISTIAN FAITH?
Why not try Alpha, a course which offers the opportunity to find out more about the Bible, Christianity and to ask questions in an informal setting.
We also support and work in partnership with Friends International, a charity who organise a programme of social and cultural events for international students in Southampton. They run activities such as the "local link" hospitality scheme and "iExplore" discussion groups for those interested in finding out about the Christian faith.
