Everybody welcome!

Moving home, moving town and moving church – so much going on if you’re a new student in Norwich. We know it can be tough to find a new church when you’re at university but you can be sure of a warm welcome, great Bible teaching, friendly faces and hospitality at Surrey Chapel. We usually have a mix of students as part of our church family including people from the U.K. and overseas and ranging from those who are investigating Jesus to those who have been Christians for a while.

What we’re about

At Surrey Chapel, we love having students around. This is how we see students fitting in within our community:

  • We want to see our students become part of our Church Family
  • We want to support students in studying the Bible for themselves
  • We want to create opportunities for our students to find, practise, grow and develop their faith and abilities
  • Ultimately, we want to equip students to become passionate disciples of Jesus

We also want to love and care for you whilst you are in Norwich and so we provide:

  • Transport to and from the UEA campus to Sunday services
  • Meals at church and in church members homes
  • The opportunity to be informally “adopted” by a family from church (you can probably even persuade them to do your laundry!)

Get involved

Students are also active members of the Surrey Chapel family and there are plenty of opportunities to serve. Whether you enjoy working with children or young people, want to play in our band, are technologically minded, or are willing to serve cups of tea and wash up there is something for everyone. We also actively support the UEA CU and Friends International and encourage you to get involved with their activities.
