Churches in York
As a Christian Union, we love to help connect students to local church families. Students in the CU come together from lots of different churches. Our churches are at the centre of our lives as followers of Jesus.
At the beginning of each academic year, the CU hosts weekly Church Search Breakfasts. The Church Search Breakfasts are a great way to find out about local churches and find friends to try church with.
. Keep your eyes peeled on our social medias for more information about these!
Some of the churches our students go to:

How to know...
When looking for a church, it's easy for us to get into the same mindset as when we're shopping: "What can this church do for me?"
Church is so much more than a product we try on as if we're shopping. As followers of Jesus, we commit to a local church to express our place in God's family.
Here are a few practical tips to help you in your search:
Pray! Ask God and he will give you wisdom
Ask your current church leaders if they can recommend a church in York, and what to look for in a church.
While it's good to visit a few different churches, aim to have chosen one by the end of your first term.
Don't be put off by first impressions. Try to visit a church at least twice before you make a decision about it.
Church isn't just for Sundays! Try to attend a prayer meeting or house group during the week.
When you visit, speak to the congregation, and not just to other students.
If you have any questions, don't be afraid to email or speak to the leaders of the church.
Remember that no church is perfect; none will be exactly what you want!
