Peter Grier shared UCC Christian Union Society's event to the group: IFES Ireland: The Christian Unions.

Lots going on today in CUs...
- this talk in UCCCU that Kevin O'Connor is speaking at
- a similar one I'm speaking up the road in I.T Carlow Christian Union
- great few hours of "first contact" evangelism in UL Christian Union that is seeing many respond positively each time we've been out so far
- a CU soccer session in UL CU where CU people can bring their friends to play and meet other Christians.

Please pray, and add to the list if your CU is doing anything soon!

Incredible to see so many people coming to worship God and to hear the first of two talks on our mission statement for the year "Treasuring Jesus above all, Declaring Him daily on campus". Please continue to pray for the work of Queens Christian Union.

Student Sunday is coming soon!
It's exciting to think of Churches across Ireland hearing about, and praying for their local CU's and IFES Ireland this time next month!!! Why not find out if your church is going to be involved, and if not maybe it's not too late to do something towards the end of November, ask politely. Let the offices know what's going on, where and when too :)


Are you going to church this Sunday? Why not tell your church leader about Student Sunday in November?

This November, we want as many churches as possible praying for the work of IFES and CUs on campus. We also want students and staff to be in churches sharing their stories!

Check out the flyer below and talk to your church leader tomorrow! Once you've got something confirmed, let the office know so they've got an idea of the churches that are going to be involved!

A Nigerian postgrad, a Chinese lecturer, a French Erasmus student and some Irish were the random group at C.U in L.I.T's first (formal) meeting y'day. There was lots of "what was that you said?" going on in the room with hugely different accents, personalities, interests and lives. It was hard but at the end, we thanked God for the little glimpse of Heaven:

"true Christianity is not a gathering of like-minded individuals who share enough in common to make gatherings effortless and enjoyable. It is emphatically not like a Meet-up of Tolkien-obsessed stamp collectors in rural Kansas or Elvis-impersonating software developers in downtown Leipzig. The whole point of community born at the foot of the cross is that it is made up of differences. The church ought to defy all sociological theories. In fact, I heard someone describe the church as "a collection of the very last people you would ever want to go on a vacation with". This runs completely counter to the nature of all other social gatherings."
