Free Resources for Student
On 19 February 2017, student groups, churches and other Christian communities will come together to celebrate Student Sunday and pray for students around the world. The theme next year is ‘All Are Welcome’, and we would love to have your church or community involved!
About Student Sunday 2017
In an increasingly hostile world, it’s more important than ever to create spaces that are generous, hospitable and welcoming for all. Spaces to think, reflect and act; spaces to be ourselves, as God made us. For students who are exploring their identity and vocation – and sometimes struggling to be heard and recognised – a truly welcoming community can make all the difference.
That’s why we’re inviting churches and groups to join with our movement on Student Sunday next February, as we pray and work to create a welcome for all – changing lives and empowering young people in faith. Find out more about Student Sunday here.
Could your church or network get involved and celebrate Student Sunday with us next year? Here are a few ways you can help:
Download and use the resources: We’ve created a handy resource toolkit, which contains prayers, reflections, stories, liturgies, activities and notes on the lectionary readings. You can download the pack for free from SCM’s website here, and use it to plan a service.
Invite a student to share their story: Nothing beats a personal testimony from students in your congregation, or from the local university, so ask them to share their story during the service. You can also invite someone from the SCM team to speak about the importance of faith for students. Email the office to get in touch.
Spread the word online: help us share the resources with other churches and networks, using the hashtag #StudentSunday and link to our webpage. Please also use the hashtag next February to share photos and moments from your service.
Arrange a collection for SCM: SCM’s aim is to inspire more students to deepen their faith, explore their calling and take action for justice while at university. You can support this movement by arranging a collection for SCM, either during Student Sunday or at another convenient time. Click here for more details.
Please don’t hesitate to get in touch with SCM if you have any questions, either about Student Sunday or anything else about the movement.
Student Christian Movement is a CTE Body in Association.
