Ciao from Naples!
After an early morning flight, we've arrived in Naples to help a church with our friends in GBU (part of the IFES family) to run an English camp for local students. We would love it if you could pray for us as we plan Irish night, prepare to teach English and for good friendships to form between us and the Italians that we may be able to share our lives and love for Christ with them.
Representing our all Ireland team: Molly UUC, Romy QUB, Anna Maynooth, Yasmin UCD and myself Christy QUB.
A student from the Bulgarian IFES Movement is moving to study in Jordanstown. Any CU members have space in a house for a female flatmate, or know of anyone who is looking? Message us, if so.
Any CU ever hand out tea/coffee on campus or at events?
Our Cork friends Down2Earth Materials have offered us a good deal for anyone wanting compostable cups (or any items related to serving food) that are environmentally friendly and won't clog up landfill sites for years to come. In addition to this, it's as cheap as the wholesalers (like Musgraves) for some of their stock. If you want in on the deal, message me!
QNow2016. Mark Gowdy addressing a packed room at the start of our Apologetics Day conference #christianunionsireland #reality316
QNow2016. Jonathan Berry of True Freedom Trust on the important issue of 'Is the gospel good news for gay people?' Gracious, personal, real, clear, convicting, challenging. Voices like his from within the gay community are so important to hear today.
An event for anyone who can get themselves to Portrush TOMORROW!

Are you in the Greater Belfast area? Have you graduated in the last 10 years? Are you interested in learning how to live as a disciple in your chosen profession?. Have a look at this CUI/IFES Europe pilot programme and message us if you would like to be part of it.
Here's a snippet of our trip to Bulgaria. Taking part in the summer conference 'discovery diversity' was a brilliant experience, very eye opening. The students we met are now counted as great friends, excited to see how the relationships will develop among students across Europe. Sharing faith and life has been such a blessing to all participants. Really want to encourage all the work that goes on with international students, anything that we can do to help people coming into 'our culture' that is polar opposite to theirs is really important.
Most of all seeing students passionate about being a disciple of Christ and desire to make disciples in their setting, has for sure been inspiring.
