‘Jesus is not just a nice idea’

Coming to uni as a Christian, I have had many people say to me ‘aw must be so nice to belong to a church/CU community’ or ‘that’s so sweet’, or things along those lines. Whilst it IS so great to belong to a community and there is so much...

When I was younger, despite having been brought up Christian, my faith was more abstract. I accepted and followed some aspects, but not others, particularly if I thought they did not align with my view of the world as I saw it. Coming to university, I realised I actual...

JESUS IS NOT A LUNATIC

I was brought up a Christian, but my faith has felt genuine for as long as I can remember. I have lived my life aiming to be as much like Jesus as I can because, yes, we are told to (1 John 2:6), but also because his teachings and legacy are life-...

The gospel - or “good news” - of Jesus has not stopped being good news. It is not a message that fell down at his death. Nor is it something that we have ‘outgrown’ as time has gone on. If Jesus stayed dead, you’d be spot on think that Jesus is scarcely relevant to tod...

My name is Umas and I am a Christian. Though I’ve been through so many adversities, such as self-doubt, the loss of my father, and financial issues, I am still having peace in my heart. What is real to me in Christian faith is the peace from God. It keeps me perseverin...

“I’m not a Christian because I need a bigger purpose for a life that otherwise is a rat race of chasing dreams, or a coping mechanism to deal with the anxiety of a fraught and fractured world. I’m a Christian because I was convinced by the historical evidence of the li...

LOVE!

God’s love for us is amazing. He loves us so much that he allowed his only son to die, so that in him we may have eternal life. The bible says that God stands at the door to our hearts and knocks, longing to be invited in. He wants to be in a relationship with us....

I always thought that because I was brought up going to church with my parents I was a ‘normal’ Christian, that there was nothing particularly special about my faith. But the truth is Jesus met me personally where I was at, I discovered that Jesus is real to me and he...
