A bit more...

We are a vibrant, Pentecostal church which meets in two south Birmingham locations; Selly Oak and Weoley Castle. We belong to the Elim movement of Pentecostal churches.

We welcome students to be part of the multigenerational life of the church: from joining a connect group, to serving on one of our ministry teams. You are invited to make our church your home away from home.

What do we do for students?

We always serve teas, coffees and cakes after our Sunday services, but twice a month during the first semester is followed by a free Student Lunch: a great setting to meet the range of students in our church, welcoming both home and international students.

We invite students to get involved in any of the connect groups that meet during the week, but the most popular among students is the Student Connect Group, who meet in the church coffee lounge on Wednesdays from 7:30-9pm.

The 'Mid-Year Retreat' stands to create a time in the year where we get away as a group to meet with God. Put away distractions, retreat, refresh and connect with God in a new way. Students can expect to grow in their faith in Jesus and have fun while doing it!

"...I feel like new friendships were formed and deepened while away on the retreat that may not have happened if I didn't go on the retreat" Sophie (1st Year Student)

"... I loved the Mid-Yr Retreat, cannot wait for next year" Krystal (3rd Year Student)

Students going through tough times can receive pastoral support. The church also has good connections with other supporting agencies.
