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.

Fortnightly Student Night

Student Nights are an opportunity for us to get together as a student community fortnightly to build relationships with one another, play MAD games, hear teaching from the bible, receive prayer & worship Jesus together. We meet every other Wednesday at 7pm together.

BLESS Society

BLESS Society is a society in Sussex University started by the church as an opportunity to eat good food, hang out and make friends. Each week we have a new cuisine to enjoy and the best part is that it's completely free. This is a place to invite your friends and eat until you can't eat anymore. We will then be jumping on the FREE bus from campus to the evening service at the Clarendon Centre for 6.

Sign up to BLESS society 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?'
