st john's COLLEGE
Welcome to Trinity and St John’s CU!
We’re Charlotte (2nd year classicist) and David (2nd year physicist) and we’re super excited to welcome you to Trin/John’s CU, which we are heading up for 2021-22.
To all the freshers: hello! Congrats on being accepted into Oxford and we hope you’re excited about starting this new chapter of your lives.
College CU is a really great part of college life: we meet together every Wednesday to spend some time together with God, growing in our love for Him and equipping each other to share the good news of Jesus with our colleges. We’re a close-knit community, from lots of different churches and backgrounds, and we foster a strong sense of fellowship as we do Bible studies together, catch up and pray for each other. There’s always a sweet treat on offer too, if all of that doesn’t tempt you!
There are plenty of in-college events such as CU brunch or the infamous dial-a-doughnut (you’ll have to come along to find out more…). There is also a fortnightly uni-wide CU event (called Central) where we meet with other college CUs. This is a great opportunity to make friends throughout the University! We’ll also be running church search events for the first few weeks of Michaelmas because finding a church can sometimes be daunting, whether you’re new or have just never looked before.
If you’ve got any questions about Christianity or faith, want to know a little bit more about Jesus, have been a lifelong Christian or haven’t been to a Christian event before, anyone and everyone is so welcome and we’d love to see you there!
We want to help you feel settled into college life here, so if you want a chat or a cup of tea/biscuits, then please do drop us a message on Facebook or email. Similarly, message us if you have any questions about CU, college life in general or just want to get in touch before term starts!
Can’t wait to meet you!
Charlotte and David
