Weekly Gatherings

Our weekly gatherings are a great way to make the huge campus smaller and make meaningful friendships with other UW-Madison students. We offer a mix of staff- and student-led gatherings every semester. The list emerges from what the community is interested in, which means there will always be a gathering for you!

Bible Study ~ Led by Anna and Emily

If you've ever been confused, intimidated, or enraged by the Bible, you're in good company. This Bible study is one where you can be honest about how the Bible makes you feel. All are welcome to join us as we read, think, and learn together!

Service Club ~ Led by Evan and Jas

Interested in learning about social issues in the Madison community and taking action to address them? Check out Service Club, a volunteerism and activism group led by students!

Run Club ~ Led by Lauren and Jacob

Start your day off right with some early-morning exercise! We gather at Pres House before joining up with the November Project at the top of Bascom Hill for a full-body workout.

Midweek Morsels

Everyone’s favorite midweek hangout; every Wednesday, 4-6 pm. We serve up some delicious homemade baked goods along with free coffee and tea. The Wii is on, the puzzles and board games are out, and the vibes are immaculate.

Music Team ~ Led by Natalie

Bring your instrument, your voice, or your AV skills to open music team rehearsals! Our team has featured guitar, bass, organ, cello, violin, saxophone, flute, and more, and we play a wide variety of music: contemporary, classical hymns, Taize, gospel, etc. All UW-Madison students are welcome, and there are no religious requirements or expectations for music team members. Contact natalie@preshouse.org if you're interested in coming to a rehearsal.

Practice of Play ~ Led by Ben and Hailey

The worst part about growing up is that we don’t get scheduled playtime anymore. Practice of Play aims to change that. Join us for board games, scavenger hunts, outdoor activities, and more!

Grad Coffee Hour ~ Led by Andrea

A place for grad students to connect over free coffee and tea and enjoy conversation.

Created to Create ~ Led by Allyson and Ava

BIPOC Faith Space is a BIPOC-only gathering where we share tasty snacks and convos about the intersections of racial and ethnic identities, faith and spirituality, and life at a PWI. BIPOC folks from all traditions and backgrounds are welcome. BIPOC Faith Space is led by queer-affirming, BIPOC pastors.

Freshman Connection ~ Led by Nii Addo

Freshman Connection is a great way to make friends and engage spirituality in your first year of college. It’s designed specifically for first-year students and we plan our gatherings based on your interests!
