You are invited to join us

A community of students and young professionals aged 18-30, gathering for faith, fellowship and fun.


We have been gathering for nearly a year now, exploring faith together, encouraging and praying for one another, and prioritising having a laugh together too. We went away for a weekend in February and had a fantastic time getting to know one another better, and praying for our community; asking God what His plans for the future are. We want to be bold, intentional in our devotion, sharing our faith with others and seeing our community grow.

During lockdown..

Right now, things look a little different for churches everywhere, but we still want to be that space where you can feel at home, ask big questions, share the things that have made you laugh or cry in the week, ask for prayer, and deepen your journey with Jesus with the support of others who also want to do the same.


So, whilst we’re not gathering weekly in houses, or getting to pop to the pub together, this is what you can get involved in:

We are SJB young adults

Small Group Online

As followers of Jesus, fellowship with other believers is so important, as modelled in Acts. We haven’t stopped gathering, we’ve just taken it online! Get in touch for details of how our small group works as the plan can vary depending on events run by main church.

Sunday Worship

We are now officially back in the building! You can book your place for the 9am traditional service, the 4pm contemporary service or the 8pm Presence service here.


Every other Sunday we have our extended sung worship service geared especially towards students and young adults, and in the Sundays in between we will have a social of some sort, whether it’s a quiz, a film, or hanging at the pub. We cannot wait until this is possible again, but for now you can join Presence online on YouTube or Facebook at 8pm.”

The WhatsApp Group

The best way for us to stay connected right now, get in touch for a link to join the WhatsApp group - where we catch up, share memes, and ask for prayer when we need it.


If you would like to be mentored by another member of the congregation who is older and further along in their faith journey, get in touch.

Follow us on Instagram

Our Instagram is undergoing a revamp and there will be a blog on the way, too. Follow us on Instagram, and watch out for the blog - could you be a guest writer?
