Buckingham has a long history of working with students from Bristol’s universities.
Our location on Queen’s Road, less than 100 metres from the entrance to the Students’ Union, has placed us close to the centre of university life.
Recent years have seen us welcoming the University of Bristol’s Christian Union to our premises for it freshers’ barbecues, and also hosting the CU’s Christmas Carol service.
We very much value the input of our students, and everyone studying in Bristol is very welcome to join us at our meetings and to enter into the life of our church.
“I’ve really appreciated the fellowship of other Christians at Buckingham and the preaching, especially the Wednesday evening Bible studies.
There are good opportunities as a student to help with various things. I’ve enjoyed getting involved with the Romanian gypsy children. The trips to the park and swimming pool are often something of a challenge but also great fun.
It is very rewarding to see how much the children enjoy the time being spent on them and encouraging to see a few of them become interested in learning more about God and understanding what the bible says.
I have also enjoyed being a Sunday school helper, again making sure the children behave during the lessons.
All of these things provide a welcome relief from my studies!”
“Situated only two minutes walk from the Students Union, Buckingham is ideally located for student work and we work closely with the CU for many events.
At the moment one of our most exciting ministries is among the Romanian community in Bristol , and especially the Romanian gypsy children.
One of the advantages of being a medium sized church is that we give a relaxed family atmosphere where everyone knows everyone else. We work hard to integrate everyone into all of our events.
Most importantly though is the ministry at Buckingham. At the moment we don’t have our own pastor but we do have regular visiting speakers who preach the word of God faithfully and accurately.
But please do come along and find out for yourselves!”
