Welcome Students – Calvary Rooted
If you’re one of the thousands of students who have decided to study in Southampton and make it home for the next three years: Welcome!
University is an exciting new adventure, but it can also be tough, so we’d love to live through the joys and struggles with you. At Calvary our goal is to help and support you to know God more deeply. Our prayer is that you’ll know Him and be living for Him better than when you first came to Southampton. We’d be honoured to be part of that journey.
We’re a big family and one of the things our students love is the fact that they get quickly adopted into it. We regularly open our homes for each other because we want to love whoever God places in front of us, despite any differences we might have. Student lunches take place each Sunday and our Calvary Rooted group for 18-30’s. This is a chance to enjoy food and laughter together, before chatting through what God has been speaking to us about and praying for each other. It’s a great chance to get to know other Christians and to encourage each other to live for God, so come along. Calvary Rooted is not only for students – people who have already graduated also come along as well as those who never went to uni.
Our students are involved in all sorts at Church: helping with PA, leading in children’s church, leading worship and serving tea and coffee. We’d love you to get involved with as much or as little as you’d like to.
We love students to become part of our Church family, so why not come visit us on a Sunday morning. We meet at 10.30am at Great Oaks School, Vermont Close, Southampton, SO16 7LT.
We are also connected to the Fusion Movement – their vision is to serve students and local churches to do mission. We think Fusion is great and we’d encourage you to get involved.
Both the University of Southampton and Solent University have Christain Unions that you can join. Again, this is a great opportunity to make the most of your time and we’d encourage you to seek out Freshers activities and get stuck in. Both groups have a church search page on their website (Southampton / Solent ) so you can look at all of the church groups they work with.
