Catz & New - Jed & Rachel - Joint CU (1)


Hey everyone! I'm Rachel, a second year German and Philosophy student and I am so excited to be CU rep for New College this year 😄


Being a student in Oxford can be such an eye-opening experience; it is a time where you are introduced to so many different world views and opinions, and are given plenty of opportunities to explore your faith. My hope is that everyone will feel super comfortable in the New College CU, whether you see it as a place to deepen an already existing faith and find like-minded people, or whether the idea of God is something completely alien and New (forgive the pun). 


Our CU is linked with St Catherine's College, and every Saturday morning we meet up for prayer. This is also a time to catch up and chat about how College life is going and, more importantly, share food!


Jed (the Catz rep) and I are also planning some great events throughout the year which will give everyone in our colleges the opportunity to discuss their views (no matter how controversial!). Think formal dinners, picnics, and other (obviously) food-related events, all accompanied by deep chats and an insight into the Christian faith.


So, no matter where you are in your faith journey, you will be incredibly welcome in our CU - I can't wait to meet you all in October!


God bless,



PS - feel free to get in touch over the summer if you have any questions, or if you just want to chat! My email is, or you can add me on Facebook: . Also, take a look at Freshaway if you want to meet some other Christian Freshers before term has started!
