A large number of students from all over the country and from all kinds of churches make Kings their home whilst in Durham.
We are a lively, Bible-based community church, linked to the Ichthus Christian Fellowship in London and a member of the Evangelical Alliance.
Wherever you are from you will find a warm welcome here.

We encourage students to be involved in all aspects of church life, but there are a couple of key events and activities that we run specifically for students...
Wednesday and Thursday evenings, Various Locations
Pastorates are at the heart of student ministry at Kings – if Kings is your church in Durham, pastorates are the first place to get involved. Each pastorate is a group of 20-60 students that meet together midweek, three or four times all together as a big group, and at other times in smaller cell groups.
Wednesday and Friday afternoons, 12.30-4pm
The Cafe is a fantastic place to hang out with friends, meet up with staff or interns, or come for prayer about any matter. Hot and cold drinks, snacks and lunches are available to buy and we stock fair-trade wherever possible!
Next dates: 10-12 January 2013
You really can't miss the Student Houseparty – an amazing time away of worship, teaching, fellowship, food and loads of fun! The next Houseparty will be just before term 2 starts. Get it in your diary now!
