If you are studying at a university or college in Norwich we want you to feel welcome and included in the life of Gateway Vineyard.

Welcome to Norwich!

Thanks for looking at our student page which gives information about regular student events however as you look to settle in Norwich here are a few things that might help you decide if Gateway Vineyard is a church you would like to join:

Life Groups

If you would like to get involved in a Life Group, there is a Student Life Group on Thursdays and there are groups that meet midweek which meet near to the UEA. If you would like to get involved please contact Jo Yallop at the Church Office and she will put you in contact with one of the student leaders. Email Jo at:

Sunday Sessions

On the last Sunday on the month we have an evening service for young adults called ‘The Sunday Session’. We host it in the upstairs room of The Last Pub Standing on King Street from 7 – 8pm followed by a social downstairs in the pub after & new guests get a free drink on us. This is a great opportunity to invite your flat/course mates to church to find out more.

The next date is Sunday 26th January. We are having a Roast at the pub before The Sunday Session at 5pm. Please book here before 23rd January.


Gateway Vineyard is part of the Fusion Church Connection and is committed to supporting and equipping students. Please speak to your small group leader if there are any ways you would like to get involved or any further support we can offer you.

Transport – Free Taxis

Each Sunday during term time there is a free taxi service for students from the LCR on the UEA campus to Norwich High School For Girls, Newmarket Road to come to the morning service. The taxis then do the return journey after the service. Please let us know if you would like a taxi on the Facebook page the night before.


From UEA catch the 25 bus, get off on Unthank Road by the Eaton Cottage Pub, walk a long Mount Pleasent, turn right on to Albemarle Road and enter Norwich High School For Girls at the end of the road.

From the City Centre catch any of the number 11, 13, 14 or 15 buses towards Cringleford or Eaton (ask for Newmarket road to be sure). Get off at the bus stop opposite Albemarle Road and enter the school on Newmarket Road.
