Closer to Jesus. Closer to people. Closer to the city.

It’s often said that your years as a student are among the best you’ll ever have. But we know it’s only the beginning. We want the years you have in Guildford to be years that set you up to thrive in your relationship with God for the rest of your life.

Whether you’re studying at the University of Law, the School of Acting, the Academy of Contemporary Music or the University of Surrey, it is our mission to help you find home, deepen your relationship with Jesus and have loads of fun on the way. So, as well as the simple things in life like meeting for coffees, eating together, prayer walking, binging on boxsets and talking about life until the early hours, we do have some set things on different days of the week that you might want to come along to…

Morning Gathering: 10:00am at Yvonne Arnaud
If you are more of an early bird, we also have our morning gathering. It's a brilliant opportunity to gather with the rest of the church. We just can't promise the beer afterwards. Croissants, on the other hand, are provided!

Evening Gathering: 6.30pm at Founders Studio
On Sundays we have two Emmaus gatherings in Guildford. As a group of students we tend to head to the evening service that happens at the Founders Studio (next to KOMO). We have a bit more time for worship with a bit more of an intimate vibe. We normally head to the pub afterwards too. We'd love to you join us for a drink!



Student Nights: 7:00pm at Founders Studio
Wednesday evenings are our chance to gather as a group of students to worship together, learn together, encourage each other, and pray for all that God is doing on our campuses. All of that is hungry work though so we make sure we eat together first. So, if you're keen to get more deeply involved with student life at Emmaus, we'd love you to come along and get involved with a collective. Come hungry and ready to eat at 7pm!

The Rest of the Time

Whether it's driving into the countryside to sleep under the stars, going to gigs together, a weekend away together (which is taking place THIS February 22- 24th, find out more here), or heading to Wildfires
, we love a little impromptu adventure.
