Church overview statment Our years at uni are key to the rest of our lives. At St Mike's we're committed to encouraging you in your faith, providing deep grounding in the Bible and releasing you in worship and leadership. You can learn new skills, develop your gifts and get involved in all kinds of missionary and serving projects both in York and beyond. St Mike's is a place of belonging: there are student socials on Sunday evenings at the beginning of each term and opportunities to link with local families.
On Monday nights we have our student night, Equip, for food, fellowship, teaching and small groups. These groups stay the same to allow deep friendships to develop and mean you are supported throughout your uni life.
We aim to be a community of people who love God and live out the radical news of Jesus Christ beyond the walls of Church and Uni. We'd love to meet you.
