St. Benet's Hall
We're Sam (Second year, French & History) and Beth (Second year, Maths). We're your Somerville/St Benet's reps for this year (2021-2022) and we would love to welcome you to our joint CU!
Somerville/St Benet's CU is a friendly community where we aim to encourage, enable and equip each other to share the good news of Jesus in our college and to be built up in Him.
During term time, we meet every week on a Wednesday for Bible study at 8pm. In these we encourage each other through God’s word after catching up with each other and sharing some snacks. We also run weekly Sunday morning breakfasts (highlight of the week!) where we once again share food and spend some time in prayer for the week ahead before we head out to our various church services.
If you hadn't already picked up on the general culinary theme, we also run occasional outreach events throughout term, such as text-a-toastie or message-a-mince-pie, to create opportunities for sharing the good news of Jesus with the wider college community.
Every other week we also go to Central together, which is OICCU’s main meeting. This is a great chance for all the colleges to gather together, spending time in fellowship and praising God.
Our events are all open to those from any faith background or none, and we’re always happy to answer any questions you may have about churches in Oxford, CU or anything else. No question is too big or too small, we would love to hear from you and can't wait to see you in October!
