The student lunches at Ebe were amazing! People were so generous and loving, which I appreciated as I really missed my family when I first left home. I have particularly fond memories of the bread and butter pudding! These events were a great way to get to know other students as well.
It sounds a bit of a cliche but leaving home for Uni and settling in a great Church like Ebe really changed everything for me. I found my own faith, made great friends and grew in my walk with God.
If you’re a new student in Bristol... Get stuck into a local Church. Get to know all the people in that Church, not just the students! Let the Church bless you and look after you when you first arrive, and once you settle find ways to serve and get stuck in.
I now live in rural town in Somerset with my wife and three children. I enjoy working as a Conservation and Design Specialist for a Local Authority - yes, I actually have a job that is related to my degree!
