Freshers Week

Are you coming to Hallam for the first time this year?

We're running loads of events for you to help settle you into the city and introduce who we are as a society. From walks around the city to cosy nights in, kick abouts in the park to meals with friends, we are certain there is something you will love!

Alongside our more social events, why not try our evangelistic events? Whether you are a life long Christian or haven't give faith a second thought, all are welcome!

For more information (that's probably more up to date) check our Instagram and Facebook pages.
