Welcome to Bristol!

If you’re new to the city, we want to particularly welcome you and we hope you enjoy your time here!

Highgrove Church is an exciting place to be a student. Whether you're a committed Christian, or are simply intrigued, you are very welcome to join the Highgrove family. Highgrove is a church where it's easy to leave the student bubble, as we are passionate about enabling students to grow in their faith and to develop their gifts, by giving them many opportunities to get stuck in with the life of the wider church.

Freshers Week

From 23rd Sept, after each Sunday morning service, we will be providing free food for all students, to give everyone the chance to get to know one another and hear more about student life at Highgrove!

We can provide lifts from and to university accommodations, so drop us a message if you need one!

During Welcome Week, 24th-27th Sept, we are also joining with Woodlands Church on Woodlands Road, to give away 5,000 free burgers, so be sure you don’t buy any lunch, and instead drop by and treat yourself!

Finally, we will be at the Freshers Fair on Friday 28th Sept, so come and say hello!


We have regular student activities which provide opportunities to get to know one another and grow together in faith:

  • We weekly gather after each Sunday morning service to eat cake, catch up and pray.

  • We also meet fortnightly, on a Tuesday evenings, as a group of students and young adults, to eat, pray and worship together and work out what it means to follow Jesus in our daily lives.

  • Finally, as part of the Woodlands group of churches, there are opportunities to get involved with an even bigger extended family of students, by joining in lots of social events, including BBQs, weekends away, club nights, and Christmas ceilidhs!
