our story

Studentsoul began in 2002, when Rev Helen Harray and Rev Richard Dawson started running services aimed at students on the Otago University campus in Dunedin, New Zealand. Studentsoul is a Presbyterian café style church for students. It is led by Tom, Lynne, and a team of students and volunteers who want to help young adults find a mature faith and a supportive community while in Dunedin to study.

The services follow an interactive pattern with time for community building, discussion, and worship. The themes are relevant to the particular life stage of students at a tertiary level and provide strong Biblical teaching.

This community orientated church holds camps and social activities throughout the year. Check us out on Sunday nights @ 7pm. We meet at the George Street School Hall.
