Hello from all of us in Merton CU!
Merton CU is a friendly, growing community of Christians who aim to dedicate ourselves to sharing the good news of Jesus with every student in our college. We’re so excited to see what God is doing amongst us for our college and the University. On Wednesday evenings we meet to encourage one another, pray, study God’s Word and drink tea and coffee (with cake)! You would be very welcome to join us. We also have a Saturday morning prayer breakfast with croissants and fruit.
We run various other activities on some weeks to provide an opportunity to ask questions about Christianity which are open to everyone in our College – Christians and non-Christians alike – and we take part in university-wide events, meeting together every two weeks. Other CU events in Oxford include lunchtime talks and music evenings.
We’ll be around in Fresher’s week – we’re very excited to meet you all and answer any questions you may have. During the week, we’ll be holding a number of events but would love to hear from you beforehand. We are also part of the university wide Oxford Inter-Collegiate Christian Union (OICCU) – for more information visit their website – and they are organising a time away for Christian freshers before the start of term. Check out the Freshaway page on the OICCU website to sign up to come along. This is a great opportunity to get to know some people before you come in October!
University can be a challenging place as a Christian, so we would love to hear from you, and help you in the ways that we can. This year’s CU reps are JWol and Hope and to contact us, use the form on the OICCU website here.
