Be Curious

We provide opportunities to discuss faith and big questions of life in a safe and welcoming environment. You don't have to be a Christian to join in any events and no questions are off limits. If you want to know more about the faith or join a group studying the bible, get in touch!

*please note due to safeguarding reasons we are able to host only students who are 18+ years old

Ladies only

Looking to meet other women in Surrey that share your experience of living in a new culture and town? Rendezvous meets regularly on Wednesdays as a drop in at Cathedral Court on campus with tea and cakes and occasionally as a Friday evening get together. See our events or contact us to find out more.
