We love students at KingsGate and are passionate about helping you find a community that grows and encourages you. We believe the best way to do university is by offering your whole life as a living sacrifice (Romans 12:1), that includes how you study, rest, do relationships, and spend your time. We want to equip you to put God first in all things in a key season of your life.

We've got loads going on - get your copy of our autumn term-card.



  • On Sundays, we meet as a church family at West Road Concert Hall, 10am–11:15am for a time of worship and teaching. After the service, we provide a student lunch for undergrads and postgrads.

    Let us know if you're planning on coming along and we can meet you outside and sit with you!

Student gatherings

  • Our student gatherings are launching Tuesday 11 October 7pm at St Andrew's Street Baptist Church.

    Grab a drink and dessert, then we'll have a time of worship, some teaching and reflect with discussion in small groups. This term we'll be look at the book of Jeremiah and what we can learn about how we can stay true to God in a world that doesn't always get it!


  • We love postgrads! We have a diverse community of postgrads within KingsGate and we want to help you pursue Jesus in this unique stage of life. We'll be having some one off events for postgrads throughout the term but we also have weekly groups.


    We think meeting weekly with a small group of people is the best way to grow in your relationship with Jesus and to grow in community. Our Young Adult LifeGroups are a mixture of postgraduate students and young adults who live or work in the city. These groups run all year round and meet in people's homes in the city. We have 3 young adult groups meeting weekly.

    If you'd like to join a LifeGroup, let us know using this form and we'll help you find a community to be part of:

If you’re new to KingsGate then we’ve got a bit of information here to give you a flavour of who we are as a student community. 

Our mission as a church is “Transforming lives from our neighbourhoods to the nations by the power of God’s love”

As a student our passion is to equip you to live out that transformed life, both at university and beyond.

To do this we focus on 4 things:

Knowing God

You were designed to live in close relationship with God as a loved son or daughter, trusted friend and passionate worshipper.

Living in Freedom

Your royal identity frees you for a life of radical discipleship; living full of the Holy Spirit, being shaped by the Bible and loving Jesus with your whole life.

Growing in Community

Life is better when it’s done together. Our community is a place for you to belong, build authentic friendships and have fun.

Making a Difference

You were created on purpose for purpose: to love like Jesus and creatively influence the world around you, pointing people to Jesus in all sorts of ways.
