WELCOME TO SAINT PHILIPS STUDENTS
We love having students as part of Saint Philips Chapel Street and are passionate to see the students of Salford and Manchester thrive whilst they are at university. We look forward to meeting you and hope you find a home from home here at Saint Philips.
Our students get involved in all areas of church life and join in with Sunday services, joining a team and church wide events.

TRYING US FOR THE FIRST TIME?
Whether you’ve just moved to Manchester, or trying church for the first time – you are most welcome and we would love to hear from you, arrange to meet before the service if you’d like, and answer any questions you may have.
For the first four weeks in term we will be walking together to show you the way, meet some other students and sit together in the service.
After the 18:30 on these weeks there’s an opportunity to hang out with some drinks and snacks.

STUDENT PRAYER BREAKFAST
Every Tuesday morning (term time), 7:45-8:30am we meet together at church for breakfast and focus praying for each other, our community and our campuses in Manchester and Salford.
STUDENT LIVING ROOM
Every Wednesday during term, Saint Philips is transformed into a coffee shop vibe and opens up to students from across the city from 3-6:00pm. There’s hot drinks, games, snacks, WiFi, study tables, and loads of space to hang out with friends. And it’s all free.

New Student Connect Groups launching week commencing 14th October.
This is where we hang out, get to know each other, pray, and explore faith deeper. We hope you find that connect groups are a great place to belong, where you can grow in your faith and build in new tools to put it into practice.
