Hi! We’re Rebeccah (German and Linguistics) and Charlie (English), your CU reps for this year (2021-22).
St. Hilda's/Merton CU is a warm, gospel-focused CU aiming to encourage and equip college members to share their faith within college and across the university. We strive to put Jesus at the centre of everything we do and consider learning from God’s word an essential part of this.
We have a weekly Bible study where we gather to read the Bible, pray, and catch up. Hilda’s/Merton CU also runs events across the year where we seek to share God’s love with others - this usually entails giving out free food!
Our CU makes up part of the Oxford Inter-Collegiate Christian Union (OICCU), which also runs other events such as Monday Morning Prayer (weekly), Central (fortnightly) and Events Week (in Hilary term). OICCU also runs Freshaway for freshers at the end of September - this is a great opportunity to meet other Christians at the university before term starts.
Whether you would call yourself a Christian or you’re just interested in Christianity, we’d love to see you at any of the events we run. Or, if you can’t make it to any, feel free to stop us for a chat when you see us around college. You are also very welcome to drop us an email at any point:
We are really looking forward to meeting you!
Rebeccah & Charlie
