If you’re a student in Glasgow then we would be delighted to meet you and to welcome you into the wider family of St Silas.




A good number of us at St Silas have been students in the city, so we know what its like to juggle campus and church life. We hope that students at St Silas find it a positive experience to be part of our varied church family, sharing in our ministries and activities, and making friends with working people, families and children.

Being just a stone's throw from the University of Glasgow, at St Silas we have good links with the Christian Unions, Navigators and Friends International. Roots, our bible study and fellowship group on Wednesday and Thursday evenings at St Silas, is particularly aimed at young adults and students. You would be very welcome to join us there, and to attend our student lunches throughout the year.

We understand that if you have come from far away to study in Glasgow, you may be feeling homesick and culture-shocked. We warmly welcome you to our church services, where a number of international student Christians have found their spiritual community while away from home. International students make a big contribution to our life together as a church family.

We also invite you to join us for our Internationals Caf on Thursday evenings, from 7.30-9.30pm in the church hall. This is a time in the week where international students from all over the world come together to chat, drink tea and coffee or have a meal together. Every Thursday Caf is free, and each week offers a different fun activity to do, a topic to chat about and a closing reflection on an aspect of the Christian faith. Please see below the schedule of International Caf events for the coming term:
