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.
Ascension 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.
Our student weekend away is from the 28 February-1 March 2020, ask us for details, it’s going to be a lot of fun.
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.
