Students - Universities

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)

Widcombe and University

When you go to university, you will find Christian Unions there who will help you settle into university and seek to share the Gospel on campus. These are run in conjunction with UCCF (Universities and Colleges Christian Fellowship) who also help Christian Unions across the country. Below is some information to help you find out more about who they are and what they do.

UCCF and Christian Unions (CUs)


The Universities and Colleges Christian Fellowship (UCCF) is a charity which works with the Christian Unions (CUs) at both Bath Spa and the University of Bath. Their vision is ‘to give every student in Great Britain an opportunity to hear and respond to the gospel of Jesus Christ.’ They do this by seeking to bring Christian students together, encouraging them and helping them to share the good news of the gospel.
Here's a message from Jimmy Thomas who is the UCCF Staff Worker for Bath.

Jimmy Thomas

“Hi, I’m Jimmy Thomas working for UCCF as a Staff Worker in Bath. This means I work alongside the leadership of the CUs by providing support and encouragement with discipleship, evangelism and also pastorally. I’m passionate for helping you reach your friends with the Gospel and will do all I can to support you all in this. If you see me on campus, please introduce yourself to me as I’d love to chat and get to know you.
