our mission

Student Soul seeks to connect tertiary students at both the University of Otago and Otago Polytech with a Christian community. To that end, we provide opportunities to connect and make friendships with new people in Dunedin. We highly value service and outreach to the many young adults not currently involved with the Church.

As Student Soul is a mission of the Presbyterian Church of Aotearoa New Zealand, we seek to be a home away from home for students coming from Presbyterian backgrounds. That being said, we also value diversity and Student Soul enjoys the faithful expression of the entire body of Christ. We seek to bring together individuals from a wide range of church traditions.


Our worship gatherings are held every Sunday night during the academic terms. We enjoy a very relaxed environment. When you arrive at Student Soul there will be a friendly face to welcome you. after the service stay to enjoy hot drinks and nibbles. Our services often vary in structure.  Some weeks we offer a more traditional church service while other weeks are comprised of interactive discussions and times for meditation and contemplation.

If you are looking for a church geared towards students then please join us at George Street School on Sundays @ 7pm.
