On my way home from spending 3 days with Staff Workers from UCCF. Remember your brothers and sisters in Scotland, Wales and England as they seek to glorify God on their university and college campuses, too! Praise God for your Staff Workers, like I am for this bunch and their love and passion for the Lord Jesus and their students :)

Prayer groups happen up and down the country for the universities and colleges. Over the next few days ones in Cork, Craigavon and Belfast will all meet. Drop us a line if you want to join any of them or know details! Thank you to those who pray!
We're indebted to many volunteers, some of whom formally take on the title of Associate Staffworker (others don't) and give of their time and gifts towards the work. Congrats to Isabel Kennedy, ASW in Waterford, who got married to the WIT CU president yesterday. Perks of the job, eh?!
Exam stress builds for some. But for others (Cork International Student Cafe students and staffworkers) exams are a distant past memory and 9 of us are off to County Clare to enjoy exam-season sunshine on the beach and sharing life with each other. Dare I ask for prayer after writing the above?!

Thank you for your prayers. Great having the support of North West IFES worker, Lorna Morrison.
My name’s Stephen and I am currently working for the Evangelical Alliance in Northern Ireland.
We are currently accepting applications for internships with EA to begin in September 2016. The internship is for graduates and is an excellent opportunity for final year students who want to serve the church in the public square. It’s a particularly suitable opportunity for final year Law/History/Politics students, take a look at the flyer below and please don't hesitate to email me with any questions at email@example.com
