Welcome to Brighton!

Living and studying in one of the UK’s liveliest cities is an exciting prospect, and especially so at this unusual time in history. God is sovereign over our days and you can trust that He has brought you here with significant purpose in mind. These years will be a time of adventure, discovery and formation and we at Emmanuel want to journey with you.

Sunday Student Service Hangout

During lockdown, on Sundays at 6pm, we will be gathering on Zoom to watch the live service together, play some games, get to know each other, and have a time of fellowship. A great way to stay connected and get to know our student community during this season.

Register here.


BLESS TV is a weekly live Youtube show run by BLESS Society which is a society on campus started by Emmanuel as an opportunity to make friends and listen to engaging talks on current issues that impact our lives.

And as you'll quickly discover, with Emmanuel there's always food involved. Talks range from mental health as a student to helping the homeless, and much more. Tune in live at 4.30pm every Sunday on the Bless TV Youtube channel.

Small groups

We believe life is a team sport – best done together. Get connected at Emmanuel by signing up to a smallgroup.

Smallgroups meet weekly online to meet new people, make friends, and stay inspired. Choose from a variety of interesting groups and courses, all of which meet for around nine weeks over the term.

Student Alpha

Over 24 million people have tried Alpha in over 100 countries, and it has been translated into over 100 different languages.

Alpha is a series of sessions exploring the Christian faith. Each talk looks at a different question around faith and is designed to create conversation. Join in with other students who are on a similar journey of exploring Christianity and discovering Jesus.

Some of the questions covered are 'Is there more to life than this?', 'Who is Jesus?' and 'How can I have faith?'
