The Christian Union is a place for all those who love Jesus to praise His name and glorify God in everything that we do. On a Tuesday evening we come together in worship and prayer to lift up God's name and have fellowship to celebrate the grace and fullness of life that He has given us; however, if you we've already lost you and you'd like to discover more, everyone is welcome! We are brothers and sisters in Christ and we love it when people can come to meet with God's family! But not just on a Tuesday: we're a mission-based society seeking to spread the love and good news of Jesus around campus in many ways! Read on to see what we did last year and our hopes for the year ahead!
We kicked last year off in traditional CU fashion with our own Freshers Week events. Our passion each year is to join with the SU to give a warm and loving welcome to the freshers. We put on a variety of events throughout the week and seek to serve others. Check us out on social media and keep an eye out for flyers; we've got a BBQ, a film night or you can holla a hotdog to name a few, and keep an eye for our Cuppa stand on a night out to get a free hot drink on your way home! In December, we host a traditional Christmas carol service, we have our fancy Christmas Formal, and lastly the CU heads out for its annual Weekend Away, a wonderful time of fellowship where you'll make great friends with everyone so quickly. We'll be holding our weekly meetings on a Tuesday in the Molloy building, as well as our weekly Cuppa stand on a Wednesday and Friday night. But beginning this year, we're excited to host our new CU Socials throughout the year, an opportunity for people to come together over regular fun and relaxed events across campus, such as open mic nights, games evenings, entertainers and much, much more. And finally, before we wrap up the year with our Summer Formal, the year culminates with our Events Week, a series of social events and talks from different speakers that allow students to come and explore the Christian faith; check out on social media last year's Events Week, Story Chester (https://www.facebook.com/storychester/). CU is a place for everyone, from those who love Jesus to those who have never known anything about him; all are welcome! We look forward to seeing you there and to see what God has in store for 2017/18!
