Student Communities

SCM is made up of a network of student communities across Britain, and it is SCM's vision that every student can find a vibrant, open and inclusive Christian community where they can explore their faith and be inspired to put faith into action. 

SCM communities are unique and each group is different, but you can expect to find a warm welcome as well as activities including bible study, prayer, campaigns and social action, talks, discussions and socials. Some communities are formal university societies, and others are based in chaplaincies or churches. There are also informal communities of students that get together occasionally, as well as online communities such as the SCM Facebook group.

You can find an SCM student community near you using SCM Connect. Contact them to get involved!
