Finding a Church at University

Three easy steps to finding a local church at University.

Starting University can be an incredibly busy and exciting time! A new city, new friends, new accommodation. If you are a Christian, you will also be wanting to find a new church to settle into for your time at University. But how do you go about finding the right one for you?

This video gives some helpful steps to find a local church.

Firstly: do some research. Before you go, it is a great idea to spend some time checking out local churches online or ask any Christians you know who may live in the area.

Secondly: Go on a CU Church Search. When you get to University, your Christian Union will likely organise a Church Search for the first few months of the term, to help new students get to and try out different churches.

Lastly: Set yourself a deadline! Ideally, you want to have made a decision by the end of your first term, so that you can really get stuck into the life of the church and start to feel like you have a home.

Possible Discussion Questions

  • Do you think it is important to settle into one church while you are at University?
  • What are some ways that students can serve and give back to the church community while they are at University?
