New student? Welcome to Southampton! We love having students as part of our church! We’d love to do all we can to help you grow abundantly in faith and step out in mission during your time at university. You’ll find that the core of our student work at Ascension is a passion to help you go deeper with Jesus and encourage those around you to do the same.
Welcoming new students to Southampton – 2021
As we are meeting in person for church on Sundays, we’d love to invite any new students coming to Southampton to join us on Sunday mornings. Most of our students come to our 10.45am service, although don’t let that stop you trying the 9.00am service – find out more here.
Throughout October, we’ll be doing free student lunches after the 10.45am Sunday service, and it’s a great way to meet other students and enjoy some incredibly delicious food (we promise no pasta!)
We’d love to help you settle in to Southampton, if you’d like a coffee with a member of the team, or simply have questions, we’d love to hear from you! Get in touch with Lorna at firstname.lastname@example.org as we’d love to make you feel welcome.
Ascension Southampton student events
Our student group meets weekly on Wednesdays. Together we worship, pray and seek God’s heart for how He wants to work in and through us during our time at university. It’s a chance to be part of the student family – there’s also cake! Find out more about our small groups.
We hold annual student weekends away alongside socials such as murder mysteries and barbecues. These allow us to form deeper relationships with each other and to invite friends.
Feel at home in Southampton
We try to link every student up with a family from the wider church, which allows us to easily get to know one another, and give you a proper home cooked meal from time to time too.
Also, everyone has the opportunity to be mentored 1-to-1 by one of our student team. Uni can be difficult, and we want you to feel supported, challenged and equipped in order to live for Jesus in your everyday life.
We don’t want our ministry to end with ourselves and we see mission as a vital part of student life at Ascension. Missional adventures include feeding and caring for the homeless, socials that friends can easily come to, and sessions to help you learn to share the gospel of Jesus.
