Helping university students thrive in their studies and in their faith



Starting your life as a student in Edinburgh is an amazing and challenging time. At King’s, we believe that being part of a local church community is one of the most important things you can do. Being in a vibrant, loving church is one of the best ways to grow in your faith, navigate student life, make lifelong friends and be a part of something bigger than yourself.

What’s On for Students

Ways to engage with life at King’s

During the week

Students hang out in the middle of the week in what we call small groups: communities led by students that read the Bible, eat together, sing, talk about faith, and a whole lot more. We think they’re the best thing you can do in the middle of the week. These will function in ‘small’ small groups for the forseeable to stay within current guidelines, but we’ll mix up how we do things week by week so you can meet different people!

Meet any regular at King’s and they’ll probably invite you along – everyone is welcome. Alternatively, contact one of the student team for more information.


Click here for the full story of what our 10.30am services are like. Here are the headlines: we love the word of God and teach from it every week; we welcome the Holy Spirit into our times of worship; we’re relaxed, friendly and fun, never taking ourselves too seriously.

Every morning meeting will be followed by a free student lunch during term time. It’s a great opportunity to hang out and rest on a Sunday afternoon, and reassure your mum that you’re eating at least one square meal a week.

While there are restrictions on large in-person meetings at this time, you can watch our livestream on YouTube – we encourage people to watch with friends. You can sign up for a ‘Micro Student lunch’ to watch the service with someone from church and have lunch with them afterwards – a great way to get stuck into the family here at King’s

Get involved

Invite your friends to our Alpha course or a social to see what God might do in their lives.
