Impact Groups

Impact Groups are a place for students to be impacted by the Bible and go on to impact others, as we seek to give every student in St Andrews the chance to encounter Jesus! As small groups of between 3 and 8 members, they involve Bible study, prayer and fellowship, with members coming together from different year groups as part of the whole mission team that is the CU.

Under the current circumstances, Impact Groups are primarily virtual, with the potential to meet in-person as restrictions allow. They are the primary source of community and mutual encouragement in the CU, and if you’re new to St Andrews, they are a great way to connect with a local church through the Christian students whom you’ll meet!

Below are a few of the Impact Group leaders for this year, all of whom would love to have you join a group! If you have any questions or want to get in contact with group leaders in your hall, please email Abi at
