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.

Student team leaders Arnold and Jess Kaloki caught up with Joel and Katie Virgo who lead Emmanuel to hear their thoughts on Emmanuel, the season that we are in and how students can make the most of their time at university.

Sunday Church Services

Whether you're in Brighton or further afield, we have both in person and online services you can engage with to worship Jesus with us, meet other students, and do life together.

We host Student Service Hangouts at 4-6pm every Sunday on Zoom where we play games, watch back the church livestream together, hangout with one another, and pray. For more information and to sign up click here.

We also host in person services at 6-7:15pm for live worship, live preaching, and communion. For more information and to sign up click here.

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.

Sign up to a small group here.

Prayer Gatherings

Jesus leads the church, and one of the ways that we work that out is when we gather to pray, worship and tune in to what He's saying to us.

We gather every Monday 6-7pm on Zoom to pray as a student community. If you'd like to join in, click the zoom link: ID: 822 7436 3060

We also gather all parts of the church together once or twice a term at our 'Big Wednesday' prayer gatherings. To find out more and see the next dates of these prayer gatherings click here.

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?'
