Welcome to the SUCU Newsletter

Term is here and so are thousands of new freshers. If you're new, 'welcome'! We're so glad to have you with us. And if you're an oldie who helped with anything we did these last two weeks, 'thank you'. But Freshers' Week is only the start, and we have loads more going on... 

Quiz Night

 We couldn't face Freshers' ending so we have one more special event to go. Tonight at 19.00 in SUSU's Bar 2 (bottom of the main staircase by reception) we'll be hosting a quiz night with a short talk from Tom Hoppé. Come along on your own or with some mates, grab a drink from the bar and join a team to quiz for prizes! Check out the Facebook Event here

Pre-Unite Prayer

 We rely on prayer at the CU. Before our main meeting we gather together to speak with our Father and pray for the evening ahead. Please join us for PUP in the foyer of Building 46 at 19.00

Unite

 Whether you're a regular or have never been before, we'd love to see you at our weekly meeting! We'll be hearing from God's Word, offering sung worship and praying together. Niv Lobo will be exploring John 6v26-51 to unpack Jesus' claim 'I AM the bread of life' and asking 'am I satisfied?'

Make sure to join us from 19.30 on Friday in (different to usual) Building 46 Room 3001 (LT A)

Missed last week? You can listen to Tim Dennis speak on Luke 7v36-50 here

Inside Out

 Fancy sharing the love we have received in Christ and the Good News with those on a night out? Then this is for you. We gather at Portswood Church at 23.30 on Friday to pray and focus before sharing biscuits, drinks and conversation with those on the way to and back from a night out. It's a great way to talk about Jesus with our fellow students. Check out the Facebook Event here

Buddies Social

We have a buddies social on Saturday. We're meeting in Building 34 Room 4005 at 14.30 for a photo challenge around campus. Don't have a buddy but would like one? It's not too late to sign up here. For more info contact Emily Dee at hallgroup@sucu.org.uk

Big Prayer Meeting

BPM. It's our heartbeat. Find us each Monday in the Activities Room on Level 2 of SUSU from 8.00-8.45, praying for the week ahead. If you've got a lecture afterwards you can leave whenever you need and if you don't, you're welcome to join us in the SUSU Café for breakfast

iCafé

We're blessed at Southampton that thousands of students travel from all over the world to study here. We want to be serving them and sharing the gospel with them. iCafé meets each Monday from 20.00-22.00 in the SUSU Café to have activities, build friendships, practice language and, if you wish, to look at a bit of the Bible. Let them know you're coming on the Facebook event here

Hall Groups

 Each week on Tuesdays from 19.30-21.00 small groups meet in each Halls of Residence across Southampton. With these groups we seek to build community, equip each other through the Bible and be sharing the good news with those we are living with. More details here

Text a Toastie

Affectionately known as TAT, this is our ministry seeking to answer people's questions about Christianity whilst providing some free food straight to their door. If you're on team, make sure to be at the Faith & Reflection Centre for 20.30 on Wednesday. If you've got questions about faith, text in to 07754355421 and be encouraging your mates to do so too

Grub Crawl Sign Up

 Fancy a free three course meal? Or would like to cook one?

If you're a fresher we would love for you to sign up for the Grub Crawl which is on Wednesday 11th October from 18.30. You'll get to go round three houses with a small group for a different course at each place. This is a great opportunity to get to know more of us in the CU.

If you're no longer a fresher and would love to host, we'd really appreciate your help. The sign up for both is here and the deadline to do so is Saturday 7th October

Discover

 Started to find out about Christianity recently and want to discover more? Well this course is for you. Starting from the 12th October in Building 28 Room 1021 at 19.30, we'll be meeting each Thursday evening to have a space where any question goes and an opportunity to explore further the claims of the Christian Faith

 

 Wow. A few things going on. If you've made it through this newsletter, congratulations! Future editions will be shorter (I promise!) but we really wanted to share with you everything that we have going on. If you have any questions feel free to get in contact and I'll see how I can help

Have a wonderful rest of the week and see you soon.

God Bless,

Simeon
