What’s on

Anytime: Coffee and a Chat

Want to meet up with a Christian? At SUCU we run Coffee and a chat so you can do exactly that! It’s a chance to meet up with a member of the Christian Union and chat about life, Christianity, or ask any questions you might have! If you’d like to meet
up with a member of SUCU, text us at 07784984002, with your name and phone number, and we’ll get in touch with you ASAP!

Monday

Big Prayer Meeting (BPM)

Mondays – 8am (45 mins) – Activities room, Building 42 (SUSU)

We believe in a God who hears and answers prayer, and who chooses to use us to share the good news and love of Jesus Christ. So it’s crucial that everything we do in SUCU is based in prayer – communicating with our Father in heaven. Join us as we
worship and pray together to start the week in the best way possible.

International Café (iCafé)

Mondays – 8pm (2 hours) – SUSU Café, Building 42 (SUSU)

If you’re an international student, iCafé is a great opportunity to make new friends, both international and British. It’s a place where you can practice your English, have fun and discover what it means to know Jesus. There are also free drinks
and cakes provided! If you are part of the CU please come along too; if you love Jesus, love chatting to people and love playing games then you will love helping at iCafé! Each week there is a different theme. In the past we’ve had Karaoke Night,
Pancake Night and Games on the Common, Hat-Making, Christmas meals and Easter Egg hunts! And don’t worry about getting home – every night, including Mondays, SUSU run a safety bus from 8pm onwards, which will take you to your front door (anywhere
in Southampton) for only £1.50. Pick it up on the SUSU concourse. For more information, please take look at the Facebook group or email the International Team!

Tuesday

Hall Groups

Tuesdays – 7:30pm (90 mins) – Various locations (see below)

If you’re a fresher, or you’re living in halls, Hall Groups are for you! Whether you’d say you’re a Christian, or just curious, you’re welcome. Hall groups are a space to pray, worship, and discuss the Bible with your fellow hall mates in order to equip you to share the amazing news of Jesus. Host outreach events in your halls too – be as creative as you like!
If you’re a fresher living in a house, we’d recommend joining the hall group closest to you. The majority of private rented first years go to ALP (Archers Road/Liberty Point/Private Rented). If you’re not sure which halls are closest to you email
Hall Group Team and they’ll help you out.
At SUCU we encourage first years to be involved in hall groups. Second years onwards we’d encourage to be involved in church small groups. If you’re not able to part of a hall group or a church small group we’d suggest you check out SotonNavs (see the Thursday section!)

If you have any questions about Hall Groups then email the relevant people below, find the Facebook page or contact the Hall Group Team at hallgroup@sucu.org.uk

Thursday

Journey

Thursdays @ 19:30pm-21:00pm // SUSU Cafe, Building 42 (SUSU) // Free Pizza!

What’s life all about? What’s the point? Why are we here? If you’ve ever had those questions, you’re not alone. At the Christian Union, we want to give people the opportunity to find answers to those big questions! Journey is an opportunity
for people who wish to find out more about Christianity! It consists of 6 weeks of short talks at the SUSU Cafe, on a Thursday night at 19:30pm. At every night there’s space for discussion after every talk. No question is too big or small,
you can ask anything you like! If you’ve always wandered what Christianity is all about, or had questions about Jesus, then this is the place for you!

Week 1: 04/10/18- The Start: Where are we headed? Week 2: 11/10/18- Who are we following? Week 3: 18/10/18- Why should I go this way? Week 4: 25/10/18- The problem. Week 5: 01/11/18- What does this all mean for me? Week 6: 08/11/18- The End?: What about the rest of my life? And there’ll also be free pizza being served at every night! Feel free to come down if you’d like to find out more!

SotonNavs Bible Study

Thursdays – 9pm (2 hours) – 53 Harefield Road

SotonNavs is part of The Navigators UK and has been working amongst students in Southampton since 1968. If you are a student in Southampton and would like to join
one of the NAVS Bible study groups, do join them at 53 Harefield Road on a Thursday evening. They begin with a meal together at 6:30pm followed by Bible study groups and prayer groups. For more information, find them on Facebook visit www.sotonnavs.org or email Steve and Debs (steveanddebs@sotonnavs.org).

Friday

Pre-Unite Prayer

Fridays – 7pm (30 mins) – Foyer of Building 32 (EEE)

An opportunity to meet together before Unite to pray for the evening ahead, and to be asking God to be at work through our time together, in both the worship and teaching.

Unite

Fridays – 7:30pm (90 mins) – Lecture theatre 1, Building 32 (EEE) or Avenue campus (during exam season)

Our main meeting: we come together to unite around the truth of the good news about Jesus. This is where we’re equipped and encouraged in our mission to campus. Prayer, worship, and hearing God’s word – the Bible – explained by a speaker, all play a part in this.
Everyone’s welcome, whether you say you follow Jesus or not, so please feel free to come; if you’re new you’ll see people in blue t-shirts at the entrance to EEE who’ll point you in the right direction.
In case you can’t make it, or you just want to listen again, the talks are recorded each week and the mp3 can be downloaded from the Media page.

Inside Out

Fridays – 11:30pm (3 hours) – Portswood Church

Inside Out is our outreach team, taking biscuits and being friendly faces at Southampton’s club scene. CU members meet at Portswood Church where there is a short Bible study and prayer, before setting up for the night. Some
remain at the church and provide hot drinks, biscuits and toast for those heading back to homes and halls after a night out, and some head down to Bedford Place with armfuls of biscuits. We are there as a CU to show Christ’s
love through actively serving the clubbing community, listening and talking to anyone we encounter, showing God’s love through our actions.
It would be great to see you there, head to our Facebook group to find out more information!
