Students & 20s

Welcome to the best city in the world.

We want to support, equip and send you during your time here. Scroll to see how.

See a snapshot:

Sunday mornings.


The majority of our students are part of Churchcentral South in Edgbaston.
On Sundays, we meet in a school just over the road from the University of Birmingham Guild of Students.
You can grab a coffee any time from 10am.

Ways to connect.

As a student in Churchcentral, there are plenty of ways to find your place in the family. Our weekly Student Life Groups, our student lunches and our socials will help you get involved.

We also run an 'Adopt A Student' scheme, where you can be paired with a member or family in the church to provide that bit of support, friendship and home-cooked food while you're here.

Play your part. Be stretched. Grow.

Muck in

Put down roots

We encourage students not to be spectators but to get stuck in and help make Churchcentral all it can be. Students are on loads of our teams helping with welcoming, leading worship and our youth, kids and tots work. Come and grow by mucking in. 
Many students have also put down roots and stuck around. Many years on from their Uni days, they now call Birmingham and Churchcentral home and have gone on to lead or play active roles within our church. Might you be one of them? 

International student?

Are you studying in Birmingham but from another country? We can't wait to welcome you. Churchcentral South has people from over 25 different nations, and a regular international Life Group where we explore Jesus with friends from around the world, and loads of food. If English is your second language, we also provide printed notes  during the talks.

Exploring faith as a student?

We love meeting people of all different beliefs and in all different stages of their faith journey.  

We put on specific Sunday mornings called “Big Questions” to help address some of the common objections people hold. We also play a part in events run by University-based groups like Agape Student Life or the Christian Unions. We’re confident you’ll find Churchcentral to be a community that is welcoming and engaging for you if you’re looking in on the Christian faith.

Students & 20s Weekend Away

Once a year we get out of the city for a weekend of going deeper with God and one another. These are times of fun, food, and every year friendships deepen and God works in us. Keep your eyes peeled for this year's event or check out some shots from previous years...
