Students & 20s

Welcome to the best city in the world.

And welcome to our Students & 20s community!
We’re committed to welcoming and caring for you.
More than that, we have a longing to see Jesus the most talked-about person in this part of the city.
We want to release you to play your part in that on campus.
Take a look around and get involved...

Sundays: Gather in-person

Join us on Sunday mornings!
We gather at King Edward's Girls School opposite the University of Birmingham Guild of Students.
There's also a short online service for those unable to gather for some reason.

ways to connect

Connect with other students

Most of our students go to Churchcentral South. 
As well as our gatherings with our wider CC South family, we gather together in student groups to help you meet other students & 20s and grow in your faith together.

Connect with the wider church family

Every student in Churchcentral is given the chance to connect with the wider church family through our 'Adopt A Student' scheme, providing that bit of support, friendship and home-cooked food while you're here. There's also an opportunity to join one of our Community Groups - find out more using the link below.

Connect and explore faith

We love meeting people of all different beliefs and in all different stages of their faith journey.  
One way of exploring is through a short course called Alpha. It's for anyone who wants to look at big questions of life and faith.

To connect in any of these ways, simply use the form below.


More about us...

Sunday mornings.

The majority of our students are part of Churchcentral South in Edgbaston.
On Sundays we usually meet in a school just over the road from the University of Birmingham Guild of Students. 

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.

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? 

Students & 20s Weekend Away

Our Student & 20s weekend away is a key connection point in the year, helping us go deeper with God and one another.

When in lockdown...

During the pandemic, the weekend away happened online and our now infamous Bake Off and Taskmaster films were produced. Check them out:

Our Student Workers

Tom & Emma Parkin

Look out for them at Churchcentral South.
