Irish Preterm 2016

Starting university or college this Autumn?
Join with students from all around the Republic before you start into university at the Irish Preterm!

Preterm is a great opportunity to make new friends before you start into the next exciting chapter of your life and get plugged into your college/university’s CU!

Almost every campus in Ireland has a Christian Union – a student run society that exists to see students transformed by encountering Jesus, whether that is by hearing the good news for the first time or growing in their faith.

Irish Preterm is a chance for students who are starting third level education this Autumn, in one of the colleges or universities in the Republic of Ireland, to gather together before starting your course, to link up with people who will be in your college or university or in your region, to learn from God's Word together as you prepare for this transistion to college life, to find out what a CU is and how you can get involved with the CU on your campus!

Can you sign up before the Leaving Cert results are out?
Yes! Please do! If you know you want to come to a ROI campus you can sign up before results are out on the 17th of August. We would just ask that you would contact us afterwards to confirm your place.

How Much: €25
Contact: Peter Kenny - p.kenny@cui.ie

I realise we've invited lots of you who are already studying or have already finished your studies! But we'd love it if you would invite any people you know who are hoping to start study on one of our ROI campuses this Autumn! It's the first year we've had an Irish Preterm, so we'd love to spread the word as much as we can!! Thank you!! :)

We have come to the end of our Italy trip! Thank you so much to everyone who prayed for us.
The camp finished well, with everyone gathered on Sunday to worship God together and hear our final bible talk. Please continue to pray for the participants in this camp, that the seeds of learning that God has planted in the past week, will continue to grow and flourish under His care to produce a great harvest, all for His glory. We on the team have been so thankful for this opportunity to serve here in Italy, and for all those we met and all we learned ourselves.
'On this mountain the Lord Almighty will prepare a feast of rich food for all peoples, a banquet of aged wine— the best of meats and the finest of wines. On this mountain he will destroy the shroud that enfolds all peoples, the sheet that covers all nations; he will swallow up death forever. The Sovereign Lord will wipe away the tears from all faces; he will remove his people’s disgrace from all the earth. The Lord has spoken.' Isaiah 25:6-8

Are you a smaller CU wanting to connect with new freshers? Post your page up in the next few days and I'm sure people across the island will know others going there. Here's a start!

Good evening from camp in Castlenuovo Della Daunia, Italy! Thank you for your prayers so far. We are all safe and sound, we are south from the earthquake. Please do pray for those affected. Tomorrow is the last full day of camp, we leave Sunday, pray for the students and those from the church here. Pray specifically for the Bible talks to have a lasting impact and for good conversations. Enjoy the snaps: from Irish night and English class. Praise God for the generous hospitality of our Italian friends:)

There will be an informal meeting for all students and those about to go into further education, at 9.30 pm on Thursday 25th in the halls to the rear of HRPC. The event will take place after the main evening meeting when David Montgomery the regional director of IFES will speak and will be led by the IFES team.
It will be an opportunity in a relaxed atmosphere to share experiences with other students and to ask questions, seek advice etc.

There is no charge for the event which will take place in one of the upstairs rooms. Just follow the signs.

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!
