Student & Young Adults

Welcome Students ! There's lots of opportunities here to help you settle in to life in St Andrews. Please visit our Student Welcome Page for more information and fun videos. Also you can download our Student Welcome Pack or pick up a copy at the church.

//Student Hospitality

Students who attend SABC can find a 'home-from-home' by linking up with a church family. Our desire is to see every person in SABC connected to someone else who can provide friendship and hospitality. Although we cannot share meals under current Covid safety guidance, students who connect with a church family can still receive support and encouragement from their host families through phone calls, walks, or one-to-one meet ups.

Awake is a weekly Bible study for students and young adults involved with St Andrews Baptist Church. We meet on Zoom, Thursday evenings 7:30–9:00 pm during term time.
We begin our time with a chance to socialise and meet new people in breakout rooms, have a short Bible talk, and split off into study groups. If you come to Awake, you’ll be part of the same Bible study group each week, meaning that you’ll get to know your fellow group members and settle in quickly. You’ll have a Bible study leader who is a peer, and a pastoral leader, who is a member of the Baptist church. Awake is a fantastic way to connect with other believers and be supported as you grow in your walk with Jesus. Contact Tamara and Ethan at for more information, including our weekly Zoom details.

//International Students - operating online and with social distancing.

A scheme, organised by a member of our fellowship under the auspices of Friends International, is in place to encourage Christians to make friends with students from overseas. As many as 60 international students each year are linked with host families (not all from our fellowship) and they benefit from the opportunity to improve their language skills, and enjoy new friendships. Two Bible Study groups have been set up for those people who want the opportunity to learn more about Christ & the Gospel. //Toastie Bar (Watch Video Introduction) On Friday nights during term time the church hosts a toastie bar serving toasted sandwiches to late light revelers in the town centre.

//Post Graduate and Young Adult Home Group

Meets at 7pm on Thursday evenings for dinner, worship, bible study and prayer together. Please Contact Us for more information.
