churches

Bearwood Chapel

We don't claim to be one of the big student churches but Bearwood Chapel provides a great opportunity to get involved with a local church committed to proclaiming the Gospel in an ethnically diverse, socially needy area. You will receive a warm welcome and be well looked after - there's always plenty of food around. But more importantly we want to give you the opportunity to learn more about your own gifts and role in the church. So there will be plenty of opportunities to serve whether that's joining the music group, helping with children or joining various outreach activities.

Birmingham Chinese Evangelical

The Birmingham Chinese Evangelical Church is found in Birmingham City Centre, near the Mailbox. We're a church that has three different languages and cultural groups that meet in three different services on Sunday.

Birmingham City Church

BCC is a vibrant, contemporary and multicultural pentecostal Elim church at the heart of Birmingham; and our mission is 'Transformed Lives, Transforming Lives'. Our Sunday morning services at 9am and 11.15am are our largest gatherings with approximately 850 in attendance over the two meetings. We enjoy lively and meaningful sung worship and a thoughtful talk based on the Bible and the way that it applies to modern life. We often include creative pieces to further connect and communicate with all who attend. Refreshments are available after both services in our Life Cafe. During term time after the second service our 20s and students meet on campus at BeOne for food, socialising, and lively discussion. All welcome!

Birmingham Vineyard

We believe church should be fun and down to earth - the kind of place where anyone can feel at home. We love to hang out together, worship God together and serve our communities together. We think that following Jesus is all about making a difference in an otherwise crazy world and showing genuine love to those around us. As a church, God has given us a heart for our communities and a heart for mission, therefore we exist in missional community groups across the city to build one another up and bring wholeness to broken lives through the power of the Gospel. We gather centrally on most Sundays to celebrate what God is doing across the city.

Christ Church Selly Park

We are a welcoming, Christian community of all ages from Selly Park and South Birmingham. We are committed to enabling growth in relationship with God and each other within the ethos of an open evangelical, charismatic Anglican Church our modern church building has been designed to be multi-purpose, so that we can use our facilities during the week to serve our local community. Our worship services are informal and relaxed and we incorporate a variety of styles of music.

Our Nexus group for students and young adults aims to link up students, including internationals, and other young adults, through monthly social activities and the opportunity to be part of a home group.

Church Central

Churchcentral has a vision to be a church that will make a difference in the heart of the nation. We aim to do this by focusing on four particular priorities; Loving God, Loving one another, Loving those who don't know Jesus, and Going to the nations.

We love students at Churchcentral and we see you as a key part of the mission God has given us. There are lots of ways to get involved, build relationships and be trained over your time at university.

We have Student Life Groups meeting through-out the week that are a great place to meet other students, get to know people, build friendships, grow in your faith and be trained.

City Church

We want City Church to be a place where students can feel at home and grow in their faith in Jesus while at university. Students from all the Birmingham universities are part of our church family and come both morning and evening. Sunday evening is our main service for students. Our student cell group, called StudentPlus, happens after the 6pm evening service. It is where we meet and pray together, hear testimonies and most of all to listen to God speak to us as we read the Bible.

Edgbaston Old Church (St Bartholomew’s)

We are an Anglican Church with a new and growing Bible teaching ministry. The morning congregation is mostly older, but committed to reaching out to a new generation. The PCC has agreed to starting a number of new initiatives this year with this aim. One of these St Bart’s at 6 is aimed in particular at being relevant to students!

Elim Church Selly Oak

Elim Church Selly Oak is a vibrant church in the heart of Selly Oak. Our mission is to "disciple our city" by turning not-yet-followers of Christ into fully committed followers of him.

We are still at the very beginnings of what we believe we have been called for, so if you feel called to join us then we would love to meet you!

Oasis Church

As a community, Oasis is a group of people seeking to live enjoying and revealing the love we've been shown. Everything we are and everything we do as church can be traced back to two core values: Loving God and Loving People.

Like an oasis, we know that church at University for some is a place to stop during a journey, to find refreshment and be resourced for next part; whilst for others, it's a place to put down roots and help to extend the reach and impact of the refreshment we offer. Wherever you're at, we'd love to meet you, so why not come along and see if Oasis is somewhere you can feel at home, know others, and be known.
