New Students

Student Ministry at Kings

Kings is a lively Christian community worshipping at the heart of Durham City. We are committed to the preaching of Scripture, open to the work of the Holy Spirit and active in mission and service in the local community.

Students from all sorts of church backgrounds (and none) are involved at Kings. We are a charismatic evangelical church, linked to the Ichthus Christian Fellowship in London and a member of the Evangelical Alliance. Whoever you are and wherever you are from you will find a warm welcome here.

We have lots on for students, including clusters and cellsstudent getawayAlpha and the June Project. We love to see students to participate in all aspects of  church life.

During Lockdown, our student cells and clusters moved online, so we can still encourage each other in our discipleship, despite not being able to meet in person.

Our main prayer for you as a new student is that you get stuck into one of the many local churches in Durham. We have written a letter of guidance on how to think through principles about finding a church.
