Students - Overview

Seeking for students at Widcombe Baptist Church to be rooted and built up in Christ. [Colossians 2:6‑7]

"Whether you are returning to Bath, or coming for the first time, we look forward to giving you a warm welcome in our services and at Grounded." Clover Todman (Pastor)

Welcome students!

Hi there!

You may be reading this having got your A-level results and knowing that you’ll be coming to Bath in September as a Fresher (congratulations on that!), or it could be that you’re coming back and just want to see what we’re doing with Grounded this Autumn.

This year marks the 500th anniversary of the Reformation - but what was it about? And why should you care?! What enduring relevance does it all have for life as a student in Bath in 2017?? As we answer these questions together, among other things, we'll be looking at the key players - including the role of women - the vital doctrines that were defended and the challenges to the gospel that we need to be alert to today.

I look forward to meeting you/seeing you again*!!

What is Grounded?

Grounded is our group for students at Widcombe Baptist Church.

University is an exciting and unique time where students have many opportunities to share the Gospel. Widcombe as a church would like to encourage and equip students to be rooted and built up in Christ and the Gospel so that you can share this message on Campus. We do this by having lunch together every Sunday at church followed by a Bible-based talk and discussion.

We firmly believe that there is nothing more exciting, more wonderful and more satisfying than knowing Christ. Our desire is that everyone would come to know more of Christ and live for him more wholeheartedly during their time at university.


Every Sunday after the morning service during term time.


Widcombe Baptist Church Hall


12.30pm Lunch
1.30 - 2.30pm Talk/discussion
3pm onwards Students are welcome to stay and hang out until the evening service.


Whilst at Widcombe, we encourage students to sign up for a ‘One-to-one’. This is an opportunity to meet up with an older member of the church to look at the Bible together, pray and develop friendships. It is a great way to get to know the wider Church family and deepen your understanding of God’s Word.

Weekend Away

Each year we spend a weekend away together, usually at the beginning of February. This is a wonderful time for building relationships, focusing on God's Word and worshipping together. There will also be lovely food, games, chances to grow in confidence understanding the Bible for ourselves and perhaps even a dip in the sea!

Distributed Student Lunches

As well as our student lunches every Sunday at church, we also have a distributed lunch once a term where students are allocated to a number of different families in the church.
