Heslington Church LEP
A bit more...
Heslington Church is a local ecumenical partnership between the Church of England and the Methodist Church together with the Roman Catholic Chaplaincy to the University of York. All services of worship are held jointly between Anglicans and Methodists.
Our regular clergy celebrate their diversity of tradition and theology. All three of them are equally committed to the ecumenical ethos of our church. We try and keep things interesting - it's sooo boring to always agree!
Our church building is right on the edge of the University of York campus, in the village of Heslington, close to the city of York.
What do we do for students?
Although we attract a good number of students (10-15 regulars), some students feel particularly attracted to Heslington Church because it feels like a 'normal church' (as opposed to a church with a majority of students). Our congregation consists of people of all ages and many different backgrounds. We are in fact a really colourful bunch - chances are that you will feel right at home.
Students are actively involved in the various areas of our church life, such as assisting in worship, being involved with children's work, attending or helping at social occasions or being involved in the church's work in the community. We also have one or sometimes two student representatives on the Church Council.
Our church is right between the old and the new campus, and open for prayer on Tuesday and Thursday mornings from 10am to 12.30pm.
Various students groups use our building as their venue for meetings.
