We’re Carys (studying History and English at Pembroke) and Julian (studying Medicine at Christ Church), and we are the Pembroke and Christ Church CU reps for this coming year (2022-23). We’re so looking forward to meeting you!
Our joint CU is a welcoming community of students from different churches, seeking to share the good news of Jesus with our friends in college. We meet on a Sunday morning before our church services to share breakfast and pray for our college, our friends and OICCU events taking place in the week ahead. We also plan to meet every other week to study Mark together. These meetings are great for encouraging each other and growing in faith together, and we also intend for them to be spaces for us to invite friends to, for them to ask questions and maybe hear the gospel of Jesus for the first time. We look forward to also holding some social events such as film nights and G and D’s trips. As well as this, we head together to OICCU’s events such as Central and Monday Morning Prayer, for more Bible teaching, prayer, and fellowship with Christians from across the university.
Church and OICCU have proven central to both of us during our first year at Oxford, giving us a space to meet with like-minded people, who are also aiming to live like Jesus. This is our motivation as a CU, and we long for our colleges to hear the gospel of Jesus and respond.
Therefore, our events are open to all, so regardless of your background or beliefs, you are so welcome to join us. If you have any questions, maybe about churches in Oxford, or even just want to chat about starting at Oxford, we would love to hear from you! Please do get in touch with any of us at:
Carys and Julian :)
