Why students matter:
Your university years are a massive time of adventure, change and growth as you figure out who you are away from home, and who you want to be. When it comes to faith, it is also a key time for owning your own faith in God and working out how you follow Jesus as a student. You are also at an incredible time to be able to share your faith with your mates who live and work around you, who might also be questioning what life is about and who they are. We pray that through our church community you continue to discover and follow Jesus into maturity, and that your mates end up on that journey too.
G2 is not just about meeting on a Sunday
It’s about being a living community who live out normal lives, discovering more about and following Jesus as we go. Here’s a short list of some of the stuff we do
Cells – These are small community groups which meet weekly and are really the heart of G2. Cells are a chance to get stuck in with some friends, to support each other, challenge each other and learn together. We have student-specific cells and mixed cells.
Cluster – When a bunch of cells gather together and invite their mates to hang out or do something, this is called Cluster. We are always looking for ways to include people in our community, even if they don’t fancy church or connecting with Christianity. Cluster looks like the pub, campus hang-outs, beach trips, open-mic nights, gigs, clubbing… whatever you’re into, let’s do it in community with our friends.
Discipling Relationships – Let’s face it, being a Christian is sometimes hard. We have plenty of older students and church members with a wealth of knowledge that can get alongside you and help you in your walk with Jesus. Let’s get connected.
Sunday gathering – On Sundays we gather together with others who call G2 home, to learn together, spend time together and to worship our God together. Sunday aims to be accessible for anyone to come along, so get inviting!
Leadership -Students aren’t just the leaders of tomorrow, you’re leading now. As Christians we are called to lead people to Christ. So at G2 we invest in this. Whether it is leading from the front, backstage, or in the everyday we want to release you into this. It’s important to us to get you guys stuck in, in areas where you can learn, grow, and step up in leading others. All areas of church life are open for students to get involved in and we love it, so go for it, email us, ask your student workers, get in touch with our leaders.
Just plain old hanging out – We want to built genuine relationships, to support each other in our day to day lives and and have a good giggle along the way.
Our student team will be around on campus, hanging out with students, sometimes one on one, sometimes with whoever shows up – G2 students, their friends, or random others who are around and about the place. Get in touch if you fancy a coffee, genuinely – they’ll coffee with anyone and everyone! :)
For more info, get in touch with one of our student team, or come along! (or both!!) :)

Tash is passionate about prayer, worship and art. She is also getting hitched this year! She’s always up for a laugh and loves meeting new people, so bring yourself and your mates to hang out.

Garreth may not appear welsh, but he is. He studied History and Politics at York Uni and is now in his first year as a student worker. Garreth has a weird mixture of passions, from wrestling and heavy metal music, to wearing tweed and discussing deep things! He is a brilliant people-person and great to hang out with and he’s especially up for gathering the lads so get in touch!
