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 semester we shall be taking a biblical look at relationships in our Sunday Seminars, after lunch at church.

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 have the privilege to go away for a weekend together, probably from Friday 1st – Sunday 3rd February 2019. 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!

Student Lunches

We will have a number of Sunday lunches organised for students throughout the year. Most we will spend all together, others will involve 'distributing' you to a number of different families in the church and a few will be with the whole church. Even when there isn’t an official student lunch we’ll still usually spend it all together in town, at the park or at someone’s house.
