In Leeds for university? We’d love to welcome you!

Whether you’re a keen Christian or a sceptic trying to figure out the big questions of life, we want to give you the chance to develop spiritually – by learning from the Bible about who Jesus is, and what life with him is all about. We believe this happens best in the context of loving church community, where real friendships can be cultivated both with other students and with the wider church family!

It looks like 2020/21 will be a strange year to be a student, and you may be approaching the new term with all sorts of worries and concerns – particularly if you’re a fresher. Well, we’re working hard to ensure all our students still get the opportunity to enjoy proper community – even in a time of face masks, social distancing and Zoom fatigue! Watch this video by Rachael on the student team to learn more:

Student link-up

Get to know other students by joining the churches student WhatsApp group. Meet with a City Church student and have the chance to find out more about us, and gain an easy way into church community. Text Rachael to join the group.

Wider church life

Although we have a specific programme for students, we are passionate about them being integrated into the wider church family. You can have opportunities to serve, come into church membership, and get to know other Christians outside the student bubble! All in all, our students are a core part of our church, and we want them to feel as much connection and ownership as anyone else in City Church!



Sunday serices start at 10:45am in the church building and live online.

Student Minibus Don’t let our location put you off! We run a minibus service for our students who can’t make it to church another way.

Minibus pick up times:

  • Headingley - opposite Oxfam at 10:10am.
  • Leeds University - Outside the Parkinson Building at 10:15am.

To book text Rachael on 07541171711.

Student Lunches

We’re not sure how this will look this year, however, in a non-COVID world, following our Sunday morning service our students head for lunch with another family in church to enjoy some good food and fellowship.

Student Seminars

Student seminars happen a couple of times a term and are a great opportunity to chat through what God’s Word has to say on a particular topic – past seminars have covered topics including devotions, finances, relationships, rest and more.

For further information have a look at our term card pdf.

Part of the family

At City, students are part of the church family.

Student, 20’s and 30’s Weekend Away – At the end of January we have our annual weekend away. This is a great chance not only to build great friendships with the other students at City, but also with the wider church family.

Serving – From Crèche, Explorers, City Kids and Ignite, to Student Teas and Coffees and the worship team, at City we’ve been blessed with students serving in different church ministries and we’re always looking for more people to get stuck in!
