Welcome to Bangor. This is a great place to study — a small town which becomes a student campus in term time. Beautiful scenery and plenty to do, plus good courses make this an ideal place to spend three or more years studying. But be warned - once you come here you may never want to leave!
What we offer
During term-time we run a home group in Bangor especially for students, meeting on Wednesday evenings. One of our other home groups is aimed at young adults — a mix of students and professionals; this group meets on Tuesday evenings (usually) in Menai Bridge and lifts can be arranged if needed. You are welcome to join one of our general home groups instead if you prefer. To find out more, contact Magnus at the church office.
Faith Café is a session after the evening service mainly for students, although other young (and not so young) adults are welcome to join in. It is a time to chat and make new friends over coffee and soup, with a varied programme of activities. Please note that Faith Café only runs during the university autumn and spring terms (roughly, October to April with a break for Christmas) and sometimes for the first part of the summer term.
Each year we appoint a Student Co-ordinator (usually one of our postgraduate students) to help students settle into Penrallt. This year our Student Co-ordinator is Matt Dawson, a music graduate from Bangor University.
