If you're just stepping into our community after Mission's week, you're in for a treat! Whether you are new to Christianity or just curious to learn more about it, we welcome you. Our 'Christianity 101' is like a beginner's guide to Christianity, specifically designed to help you, as a newcomer on campus, grasp the core beliefs, historical background, and teachings of Christianity. We'll be diving into why Jesus Christ is such a big deal too. So, welcome aboard, and let's explore this journey together!

Meet us at The Key, College Lane at 7:30pm for part 2 of our 'Encounters with Jesus'

Jesus, for the first time, discloses his identity as the Messiah to a Samaritan woman, deemed an outcast by both Jews and Samaritans due to her lifestyle. His actions emphasize inclusivity, as he associates with and welcomes everyone, even those considered the lowest in society. This challenges us to reflect on whether we refrain from sharing the gospel with certain individuals, assuming they are disinterested or too distant from knowing Jesus. The question arises: are we inadvertently adopting a Pharisaic mindset similar to the story in Mark 2?

Our Events week is coming up soon- a whole week full of events in our own marquee giving all students the opportunity to hear more about the Christian faith and ask their questions all under the theme of Story! But we need your help…

In order to run all of our events and have a marquee we need to raise significant funds. Maybe your a graduate who has loved being in the CU in previous years or your a current student who loves being part of the community and reaching out to students, or you're a wonderful local supporter, we'd really appreciate your donations!

You can give via our JustGiving page which is linked below or scan the QR code, or if you are a church and would like to give do get in touch and we can give you more details on how to transfer money to our SU account.

This is such a great opportunity for students to engage with the person of Jesus, partner with us in this mission!

Welcome to part 3 of our "Lessons from Acts series", Luke Forty from Spicer Street will give us a talk on the Power of the Holy Spirit.

It takes lots of boldness, perseverance and strength to live the Christian life in an unbelieving world, especially on an unbelieving university campus. As a Christian, it is impossible to live a Christian life without the power of the Holy Spirit. The book of Acts emphasises the transformational power of the Holy Spirit in the lives of Christians. Acts teaches us that the Holy Spirit empowers and equips Christians to boldly proclaim the gospel and live out the truths in the gospel which enabled the growth of the early church.

Meet us at 7:30PM
The Key, College Lane

Come meet us at the Key today at 7:30PM for our new series, lessons from acts!!!

Jesus told his disciples “Go into all the world and preach the gospel to all creation”. A university campus is a great place to start being around people of similar ages and passions.

As Christians, we are commanded to spread the gospel. God has blessed university students with the opportunity to spread the gospel to people going through similar stages in life. How can Christians spread the gospel?

The Christian journey thrives on the regular support and encouragement of fellow believers. Attempting to live in isolation can lead to spiritual struggles. While Christian friends offer valuable fellowship, a church congregation includes diverse individuals who can broaden your perspective and contribute to your spiritual growth.

Church Search aims to help you find a place where you can strengthen and develop your faith and relationship with God along with the diverse congregation of a Church.

We will have an event during one of our main meetings, in the next few weeks, where we invite different Church leaders to come and give a talk about their church and community.

Introducing our new committee for 2022-23 !!! Jenny, Luis, Lizzie, Katie, Gizzy and Sam.

Although CU’s have a committee to keep everything organised and running smoothly , it’s important to remember that everyone can get stuck into the mission! We are a family in Jesus , we work collaboratively for his kingdom . So with that said , we cannot wait to meet all the new freshers coming in September and further extend our CU family ❤️.

“Just as our bodies have many parts and each part has a special function, so it is with Christ’s body. We are many parts of one body, and we all belong to each other. In his grace, God has given us different gifts for doing certain things well. So if God has given you the ability to prophesy, speak out with as much faith as God has given you. If your gift is serving others, serve them well. If you are a teacher, teach well. If your gift is to encourage others, be encouraging. If it is giving, give generously. If God has given you leadership ability, take the responsibility seriously. And if you have a gift for showing kindness to others, do it gladly.”
‭‭Romans‬ ‭12:4-8‬ ‭NLT‬‬

Our first Uncover session starts today!!

If you were at Equip last week you'll have done the first study altogether, we'll be carrying on with the second by study today at 2pm, but don’t worry if you missed the first study, anyone can jump in today!

These sessions are for anyone who wants to know more about Jesus - whether you found us through missions week, you're still figuring things out for yourself, or maybe you have a friend who you'd like to invite to these sessions! It's a super easy way to open up the Bible and chat about it together, to see the person of Jesus for who he really is and think about who he claims to be.

If you're a regular CU person you're also welcome to come along! It will be a great way to prepare yourself for reading uncover with a friend or just to remind yourself of how wonderful Jesus is and the good news he brings!

Come along at 2pm in the Oval, we’ll bring snacks 😎
