Students

The Church is the family of God, and at City Church Sheffield we love having students’ part of our family. The Church is full of diversity and united through Jesus - we want students to be united with one another and with Church family of all ages and backgrounds.

At City Church, students have the opportunity to get fully involved in all we do as a Church. That can be through joining a Life Group, coming to one of our Sunday meetings across the city and coming along to students’ specific events. Of course, being part of the Church gives an opportunity to serve — we encourage students to serve across all areas of Church life.

We want to bless students while they’re in Sheffield. Students will be trained for life, leadership and prepared for whatever God leads them to post-university.

The Bible teaches that church is a living and active family. City Church are a lively group of individuals brought together by God into His family, with the Bible and the Holy Spirit at their heart. Families are very diverse. They're full of individuals who have different hobbies, experiences and backgrounds. The family of God is fully united by their faith in Jesus Christ and in His resurrection. Students at City Church are:

  • Equipped by God
  • Excited for Mission
  • Embedded Into Family

The best way to live your life is to take each and every step with Jesus. The Bible describes this as walking in step with the Holy Spirit. At City Church we do this by fellowship and studying God's Word together on Sundays, in mid-week Life Groups and in student small groups. We also daily experience being filled with the Holy Spirit, stepping out in spiritual gifts, and growing in the fruit of the Spirit.

Jesus sends out His disciples many times throughout scripture. We believe that the church today carries the same mandate — to take the gospel to the ends of the earth, which includes Sheffield! Like the rest of the Church family, students are encouraged and excited about sharing Jesus' good news with housemates, course-mates, family and anybody they come into contact with.

It's people that makes a new city a home. Students have the opportunity to build friendships with other students, AND those outside the student bubble. By being part of Life Groups and serving in all areas of the Church, students get the opportunity to build deep friendships with the whole Church family.
