Studying in Leeds?

Welcome to Leeds! At Emmanuel Baptist Church, we want to encourage, support and equip you during your time in Leeds and we’d love to welcome you into our church family.

Student Lifts on Sundays
Each Sunday we offer student lifts from your accommodation to our services. Contact Eleanor and let her know where you’d like to be picked up from.
Student Lunch on Sundays
Every week there is a student lunch with a church family after the 11:30am service. This is a great way to get to know the church family and fellowship together over lunch.
Student Bible Study
Our Student Bible Study is on a Wednesday evening at 7pm. We meet in someone’s home and have a meal together before we study. We also have socials throughout the term too.
Student Weekend Away
Save the date! This year, our student weekend away is Friday 9th February to Sunday 11th February 2024.
If you’d like to know more about students at Emmanuel or have any questions about, please get in touch with our student coordinator Eleanor Martin or Pastor Jonathan Cannon via the church office (
We do also encourage students to get involved with the Christian Union at their university, University of Leeds Christian Union or Leeds Beckett University Christian Union.
Also for students...
At Emmanuel, we have a large Young Adults Fellowship. We all meet for Sunday lunch together once a month at church as well as having ad-hoc social events and a Young Adults Weekend away in November. Students are very welcome to join this ministry too.
Growth Groups are our small groups for prayer and Bible study. We believe these groups are central to our growth as individual believers and a loving church community. Students are also welcome to join one of these.
There are many opportunities for you to get involved in any of our church ministries, whether you want to serve with children’s work, music, sound or evangelism – there is something for everyone.
