Student Life Hope Church Huddersfield

Being a student is a great time to give clear thought to what life is all about. Student years are a bit like life – before you know it, they’re over! Why not take the time to discover life as it’s really supposed to be, by exploring who Jesus is at Hope Church?

Our church is committed to serving students. We encourage students who know very little about Jesus Christ to come along to our Sunday services. You’ll hear who Jesus is from the Bible, and you’ll see the difference he makes in Christians’ lives.

Students who already have a Christian faith will find Hope a centre for strong Bible teaching and training. Through sermons, Bible studies, discussions and away times, you’ll grow in your faith, and build relationships which will be a blessing for years to come.

You’ll also find us a strong community made up of all sorts of people, and we want to be your spiritual home from home in your University years. We have student lunches hosted by someone in the church family for the first part of the Autumn term. This is a great way to get to know other students and non-students in the church. After that we can connect you with a link family, who will be around to offer support and a comfy sofa throughout the year.

Several members of our team do regular one-to-one Bible studies with students, and would be keen to share their time with you. Or if we can help you in any other way, then just be in touch

Focus is our Hope student group. Students meet on Sunday afternoons in term time to go deeper into the Bible and to enjoy getting to know Christ and each other better. Each winter there is a very popular Student getaway.
