Our Hall-Based, Mission-Focused Small Groups

Connect Groups are on every Monday/Tuesday (accommodation dependent)

All About Connect Groups

Connect groups are our hall groups, where we meet in a smaller number on a weekly basis to build one another up in living and speaking for Jesus, and practically doing that together.  On most weeks, we have a Bible study focused on equipping us to live and speak for Jesus, we pray together, and of course have great fun and great snacks (put in requests to your leaders and they’ll be more than happy to comply!). We also have regular outreach events, where we give students in our halls an opportunity to explore Christianity for themselves.

Connect groups are made up of students from all years , who are usually ex-residents of the halls! Discover your connect group below, and if you can’t make the time of the one for your hall, of course feel free to go to any of them! Also be sure to join the relevant Facebook group.
