Student Sunday 2024

The Universal Day of Prayer for Students (UDPS) is coordinated by the World Student Christian Federation (WSCF), and has been celebrated since 1898, making it one of the oldest ecumenical days of prayer. It is marked on the third Sunday of February every year, serving as a tangible sign of our common life, connecting student movements and WSCF friends across the world.

Student Sunday is a great opportunity to pray for Britain's student population, whether you have students in your church or not. 

In 2024, Student Sunday will be held on Sunday 18th February.

At SCM, we celebrate Student Sunday every year and invite all our members and supporters to unite in prayer for the world, the church, students, and WSCF itself on Sunday 18th February. You may choose to set an alternate date that is more convenient for your community. 

To help you mark the occasion, we are creating some resources for you to use, including prayers and ideas for fundraising. You can use these resources in your Sunday service, mid-week group, or one-off event.
