Welcome to Bristol!

If you're a student, and particularly if you are coming to Bristol for the first time, we want to welcome you to the city and are excited for you in this next chapter of life!

Woodlands has a large extended student community that meets in different shapes and sizes on different days across Bristol. Also as well as our regular activities, during September we're giving out free lunches for our annual freshers welcome BBQ (Mon 24th - Thurs 27th Sept) and there will be special events as well as more information on how to get connected into some of our student groups.

Services wise, you might be interested in

  • The 9.15/11am services - Sunday morning church with more of a family church feel.

  • 7pm Woodlands - our big celebration service for across our congregations

  • 7pm Woodlands Metro - city centre, under 30s vibe

    We will be offering lifts to church in September, so for more details visit our Student page, or find us on Twitter, Instagram and Snapchat at @WoodiesStudents


Can you help volunteer at our Student Welcome Week?

This September, 16,000 students will be coming to study at university in Bristol. For many, this will be their first time away from home, and more importantly their first time away from home cooked meals. So, what better way to welcome these lovely Freshers than a big BBQ?

However, giving away 5,000 burgers requires a big team and we need your help!

So, if you have some time between Monday 24th - Thursday 27th September we'd love your help. We need burger flippers, conversation starters, prayer warriors and cleaning champions!

We love our students and we want them to feel loved in their new home, so please do sign up to help out. To find out more information and sign up, click this link (opens in a new window).

If you have any questions, email sam.cook@woodlandschurch.net.

Student Welcome Week: We need your help!

Arriving in a new city to start a whole new chapter of life is a big deal, and often pretty scary and overwhelming.

With this in mind, Woodlands hosts a huge free BBQ every year to welcome new university students to Bristol and help them connect with church and with faith if they're interested. To  make this happen, we need loads of help and we're calling on our whole church family to get involved.

It's all going down Monday 18th - Thursday 21st September, 10.30am-2.30pm, so if you have any time during that week, please sign up here and come get involved!

Whether it's flipping burgers, chatting to students or offering drinks, many hands make light work and we always have loads of fun doing it.

This first contact with church makes a massive difference to individual lives and helps kick start fresh journeys of faith. Come and be part of the team!

Student Welcome Week BBQ 18th-21st Sept

Every year we put on a huge free BBQ to welcome students to Bristol. Freshers' Week is lots of fun, but it can also be a bit stressful and disorienting, especially if you're new...

With this in mind, we figure a tasty burger and a warm welcome might help Bristol feel a little friendlier for folk who are just settling in. So tell your friends, get involved - and don't buy lunch in freshers' week! #BurgerChurch.
