The Christian Union is not a church, nor should it be prioritised over churches. Here are a few of the churches that you could get stuck into during your time at Cardiff. This isn’t a complete list and more churches will be added to it. If you are a church in Cardiff and wish to be listed here, we’d love for you to get in touch with us.
Calvary Chapel Church
Highfields Church is a large independent Evangelical church belonging to the FIEC group, and is located in the heart of Cathays. Our aim is to see God glorified as people are reached with the gospel and sent out on mission to share the Good News. We have a large student ministry here at Highfields with lots going on each week, including small group bible studies, a social after the evening service, 1:1’s and monthly student lunches! At Highfields Church we believe your University years are crucially important to your faith, therefore we don’t want you to just survive through University, but to thrive in your relationship with God… so we would love to get to know you and support you in this!
