If you are a new student, Welcome!


We would love to get you plugged into our church life.  As a student community we meet each Thursday at 7pm in church.  We eat together, then have a time of worship and discussion. You can join our facebook page to find out more by clicking HERE

a friendly community

Students are an important part of our church life here at St Nics. If you are a new student we look forward to welcoming you to our church family and this lovely city. 


There are lots of ways for students to volunteer at St Nics, from leading worship and giving talks at Student Night to learning about tech or helping with kids or youth work. 

Check out this video of some of what students loved about Nics last year.  

St Nics Student Night, people eating food

that cares about Jesus

Each Thursday in term we meet for Student Night at 7pm in church.    This is a wonderful way to feel part of the student community.


We offer all students an opportunity to be in a spiritual support group.  Spiritual support groups are groups of five that meet weekly for a Bible study on one of our 'Rhythms of Grace' (Prayer, Justice, Hospitality, Evangelism and Study.) Our students really value spiritual support groups as a group of praying  friends to share the highs and lows of student life.  

freshers' week

If you're a new student arriving in Durham, we'd love to meet you, and we have some exciting welcome events planned.

Come and say hello to us in the markeplace from 11-1 during freshers' week, or join us for a meal together at 5pm on 3rd and 10th October before our evening service.

If you're a postgrad or international student, we're also having an afternoon tea in church at 3pm on 24th September.

It would be great to see you at an event soon, and please do get in touch with us!

We love worshipping God creatively through music together. If you have some musical abilities we
