Students at St Silas Website Banner

Welcome Students! 

We believe that university is a great time to explore what it means to follow Jesus and to get to know him better. So whether you’re already following Jesus or just want to find out more about him, we’d love to meet you and welcome you to St Silas. We meet with the rest of the church family on Sundays, and in student small groups midweek. 

Take a look below to find out more about being a student at St Silas. If you’d like to get involved then leave us your details below and we’ll be in touch, or find us on Facebook for updates.

Students at St Silas Website Banner Student Roots

Student Roots is our weekly bible study for students where we gather together to listen to God speak through his word, respond to him in prayer, build friendships, and encourage one another in following Jesus. We have groups that meet at St Silas on both Wednesdays and Thursdays at 7:30pm. We also have a group (called Roots East) that meets in Merchant City on a Thursday. We’ll be starting the year online on zoom. We’d love for you to join us!

Roots Weekend Away 

Each year we go away along with Roots (the young workers) where we spend time growing in our knowledge of God and having fun together. Obvious with the current situation we might not be travelling away but hopefully we’ll still be able to spend a weekend together later this Autumn - put the 14th-15th of November in your diary!

To whet your appetite here are some highlights from a previous weekend away.
