Hey! I’m Jonny, a second-year history student, and Magdalen CU rep for 2022-3.
At Oxford you’ll get to know people and Christians from across the university, but college is unique because we all literally get to live next to each other. For better or for worse, this means we’ll always be bumping into one another, but this provides a perfect opportunity to joke, chat and encourage one another throughout the day. It also allows us to constantly model what it means to be a follower of Jesus to our mates!
The chaotic and unplanned elements of CU life are often the best bits, but we also organise bible studies, socials (like prayer and punting), and group outings to OICCU’s biweekly ‘Central’ which gathers all college CUs. Our CU gatherings frequently revolve around food, such as our lunchtime bible study in the college bar. This allows us to both physically and spiritually nourish ourselves, whilst practicing our faith in an open environment with cheap yet top-notch food!
It would be great to see you in October and, as everyone who knows me will tell you, I’m always down for a good coffee or a stroll around the deer park. If you have any questions or feel like saying hi before arriving, do get in touch whether via my college email, Facebook or else, it would be great to hear from you :)
