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. We have courses and other activities designed for those who are exploring Christianity for the first time, and you’ll be more than welcome to join in with one of these.
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 regular student lunches, and there are always people here to share the ups and downs of student life with you.
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
Student Plus is our students and young adults group, which meets for fellowship, Bible study, prayer and snacks in the Engaging space (basement floor) of Brian Jackson House at 3.45-5pm on Sundays during term time. It’s a great time to dig deep into the Bible and get to know others.

Hope Church welcomes all International Students. There are many activities to get involved in and plenty of opportunities to make new friends and study the Bible.
Hope Church supports the work of Huddersfield University Christian Union (CU). We encourage students to get involved in the CU whilst at University in Huddersfield and help support them in their mission to live and speak for Jesus on campus. We are also part of the CU’s Advisory Committee, and are committed to supporting them in many practical ways as they share the gospel with their fellow students on campus.

‘As soon as I arrived at Hope I felt at home. People invited me out for coffee, or back to their house for lunch. This genuine interest in investing in relationships, coupled with a desire to study God’s word clearly and consistently, made the decision of where to go to church easy for me!’
‘I’ve found Hope really welcoming and friendly and the teaching has helped me to grow spiritually. I have really been challenged to think through what I believe and why.’
‘Hope Church is my family. From day one they welcomed me in and I never left! I am loved for who I am, discipled to help me grow in my faith, taught awesome biblical truths and simply always pointed to Jesus! I just love living my life surrounded by people who encourage, challenge, and support me through thick and thin. We also have so much fun!’
