Hi, we're Jonathan and Elizabeth and we're the Magdalen CU reps for this year (2020-2021)!
To all the freshers and new students: welcome to Magdalen! You've come to what is undoubtedly the best Oxford college and the Christian Union is a great part of that. We believe that every student deserves the opportunity to hear the good news of Jesus, and so we meet up in college every other Wednesday to catch up, chat, eat too many biscuits and explore the Bible together. We'd love to help you settle into college life, so if you simply want a chat or some biscuits (seriously - we have too many to finish ourselves...) then feel free to get in touch.
Whether you're new or simply never looked before, it can be good to find a church in Oxford early on in the year, and so we'll be running church search events for the first few weeks of Michaelmas. As well as our fortnightly college meetings, we'll also be meeting up with the other college CUs at a big Central meeting (on the weeks we're not meeting in college). This provides a great opportunity to make friends throughout the university! If you've got questions about Christianity, are simply interested in hearing the news about Jesus, or just like discussing faith, anyone and everyone is welcome so we'd love to see you there!
Hit us up either on Facebook (Jonathan Akande and Elizabeth Imogen) or feel free to send us an email:
