We are Alex and Joseph, Merton’s CU Reps for 2020-2021. Alex is a tennis-playing English student and Joseph is a choral scholar x Chemist.


Merton CU is a warm and loving community made up of students from all years, and is always ready to welcome anyone – no matter what experience you have with Christianity, and whatever your beliefs.


Merton CU believes that every student deserves the opportunity to hear and respond to the good news of Jesus Christ, so we meet weekly, whether at a college Bible study or at an inter-collegiate ‘Central’ meeting, to learn more about Jesus Christ and about how to talk about and know better our amazing, loving God. We also hold events, like the renowned ‘Text-a-Toastie’, to start conversations with our friends in college about faith.

If you’re interested in the CU, don’t hesitate to get in touch with either of us at any time - everyone is welcome and we’d love to hear from you!
