Welcome to ChurchForStudents…
Churchforstudents is a student community of over 300 students based at St. Thomas Crookes, Sheffield. We love to meet friends, meet God and desire to Live Life Better. We believe that Jesus came to the world, died and was raised from the dead. We also believe that He came with a message of hope and we want to live a life of Hope and share that Hope with all people.
If you have never been to church before or use to go, we encourage you to come and try us out…give it a go and see what happens.
Meet friends + Meet God + Live Life Better

Ben, Jon, and the Student Team
Clusters (mid-size communities of 15-30 students) are where you will gain life-long friends, grow in your faith and practically serve your local community. We currently have 10 Clusters, each with there own leadership team and vision.
Cluster Visions Include:
- Club Outreach – giving out bottles of water, helping vulnerable students and much more
- Homeless Outreach – Meeting the homeless, building friendships and giving out food
- Creative Arts – a missional community that has a passion for the creative arts…gig nights and busking
- Football Outreach
- Come Dine With Me – more or less like the TV program but with a God bit!
- And many more….
Each cluster contains Small Groups, where you can go deeper with God and each other. If you’re not in a Cluster then you are missing out big time!

We LOVE Events…
Gathering community together is an essential part of who we are and what we do. Not only are they the best student events in Sheffield, they also provide a place to make new friends and celebrate what God is doing across the student church. Events are also perfect opportunities for students to invite their housemates and course mates along.
Our Main Highlight of the Year is the Student Conference…check it out…
Our normal Sunday gatherings are at 9am, 11.15am and during student term time a 7pm Gathering.
Sunday Gatherings are not to be missed! All Gatherings take place at St Thomas Crookes Church. Over 300 students attend the 7pm gathering (due to sleeping habits!), however, all gatherings are incredible, each packed with great teaching, inspiring worship and the best coffee outside London!
The main church gatherings take place at the following times…
“They devoted themselves to – teaching – breaking of bread – prayer”
At this gathering you will experience worship, teaching, informal ‘breaking of bread’ and extended prayer.
“All the believers were together and had everything in common.”
The heart of this gathering is family and students along with guests and visitors, and it has an informal, yet relevant dynamic. Kids Church meets during this gathering. Communion with all ages takes place on the 4th Sunday of every month.
“The LORD added to their number daily those who were being saved.”
The heart of this gathering is students and young adults along with guests and visitors. It has an emerging generation feel, but all are welcome. If you like the lights low and the band loud, then this is the gathering for you! The 7pm gathering only happens during student term time.
