Week One Events

The first week of university is a really important time for most people, and everyone has a different experience of it. Some find it a really exciting week where you get to meet a lot of new people and gain independence from parents for the first time. Others find it harder being away from home. Being a Christian in Week One can be very difficult and there are great pressures to go out and get drunk in an attempt to make friends quickly.

But it doesn’t have to be that way! There is a nine20 group in each hall who will be putting on events during the week so you can meet other Christians as soon as you get there. The CU will be putting on events during the week too. Come visit us at the CU stand in Fresher’s Fair (Mon-Wed) and sign up to become a member of CU.

If you’re coming to university and are feeling a bit scared, then please don’t worry. You are not alone, there are plenty of other Christians here. And remember we have an awesome God who is with us (Hebrews 13:6) and will give us the strength to face all the challenges that come with being at university.
