Become an SCM Friend

The Student Christian Movement needs help from progressive, theologically open people like you to secure our future. Become an SCM Friend today!

Our vision is of SCM as a generous community, expressing a lived faith in Jesus Christ where social action meets prayerful devotion. We seek to be both a radical voice for equality and justice, and a safe home for progressive Christian students. You can help us to make this vision come to life by becoming an SCM Friend. 


What is an SCM Friend?

SCM Friends are amazing people who believe in our vision of a student-led, progressive Christian movement, and support us in making it come to life through:

  • making a regular donation 

  • praying for our work 

  • offering their time and expertise 

  • spreading the word about our work through their networks. 

In return, SCM Friends receive regular updates about our work, a bi-annual copy of Movement magazine and invitations to special gatherings throughout the year.  


Why should I become an SCM Friend?

SCM relies on the support of regular and one-off donations to continue its vital work of empowering students to explore and live out the Christian faith, so please consider whether you can support us in this way. 

Through your regular support, you will equip students and recent graduates to find open and inclusive communities where they can be and belong, explore what it is to live as a Christian in today's uncertain world, and put their faith into action.
