St. Swithin’s has a great community of young adults made up of students and those in their twenties. We are passionate about building a community of disciple making disciples who support one another to become everything God wants them to be. 

We care about seeing lives and communities transformed here in Lincoln and are always finding new ways to reach out and share our hope with those around us, whether that’s throwing great parties to invite friends to or serving those who are most vulnerable, we want to be a community that makes a difference.


Whatever university you are from, come and get involved. We have loads of great events to introduce you to the church and what we are about –  if you would like to know more, find ways of getting connected or just fancy meeting up for a coffee then we’d love to hear from you.

Join us for a relaxed evening in Freshers week with fajitas and a movie and meet others from the 18-25s community at St. Swithin’s.



Our services are great for finding new friends and building community, as well as finding a team to serve on. We have something for everyone! Our 18-25s community spread across all the services but most of us are at the6:30 and we usually grab drinks together afterwards. Why not decide to serve on team at a morning service and come to the evening to recieve?


A shorter service with a warm welcome & focus on being together to worship, pray & grow - doors open at 9am with refreshments after the service.


A lively and contemporary service with a fun programme for youth and children available - doors open at 10am for refreshments.


A service to round off your weekend and set you up for the week ahead - doors open at 6.15pm with drinks before a pub trip afterwards.


We meet together every Thursday at 7:30pm. We’ll have some time to chat, hear a talk or interview and then discuss in smaller groups followed by drinks at a local pub. One weel a month we have a worship and prayer evening and once a month we have a social event which are great opportunities to invite friends along. It’s a great space to get to know one another, support each other amd grow in faith together.

Upcoming events include an EPIC party in the Cathedral, our weekend away, lunches, movie nights… we’ve got so much going on! Keep your eyes peeled on social media and your email to see what’s happening!


If you’ve just moved to the city and are missing that comfy sofa and Dad’s roast dinners, we’ve got just the thing to make you feel right at home: We know that being a student in a new city is great fun but sometimes you just fancy a nice family Sunday lunch. We have a great team of Host Families who invite students along for lunch after the 10.30 service. As well as delicious food, its a great way to get to know people from the church. Student Lunches happen throughout the term – we’ll let you know when they’re happening and how to sign up!


We would love every young adult at St. Swithin’s to have a mentor in the church who can help disciple, guide and support them. We would also love our young adults to be involved in mentoring the next generation. If you are interested in mentoring someone then look out for the next Mentor Training Session.
