Every year in second term we host a huge week of events, centred around a theme such as 'STORY' or 'REAL?'. It's a really exciting week where we all rally together as a mission team to spread the Gospel on campus! The week usually involves short lunchtime talks with a free lunch, and evening events with talks and entertainment, as well as prayer meetings and an ECU cafe. Last year we had a marquee for the first time which was an incredible blessing!
It's a great chance to get super involved in serving, and there are so many opportunities to invite your friends to hear the best news ever, and to chat through any questions that they have.
Check out our blog for testimonies:
Houseparty is our annual weekend away in October/November time!
We head off to deepest darkest Dartmoor for a few days of talks, seminars, worship, and generally hanging out together and taking a break from uni to fix our eyes on Jesus.
Highlights include: wandering around windy Dartmoor, bonfire chats, late night worship, wide games, and loads of time spent in God's word.
Our carol service is one of the biggest events in the year! As a CU we host a huge carol service for the whole of Exeter; we invite someone to come and speak, and invite a variety of groups to perform.
It's a really easy invite for friends - who doesn't love belting out carols with thousands of others, and enjoying a free mince pie?
If you're keen to get involved in helping to organise the event, contact our outreach secretary Rachel Wood!
We usually have a couple of events in summer; as exams are finished it's a great chance to invite friends!
Previous events have included:
- A mini events week, with lunchtime talks.
- A summer barn party with hog roast!
Additionally, we usually have a social or two - we are so blessed to have Exmouth beach so close!
We're also linked to some other organisations:
Just Love Exeter are a community of Christian students who long to expand the Kingdom of God by equipping themselves and others to fight for justice, and are super excited to serve generously! They host several events across each term including a weekly homeless breakfast, fundraisers for local charities, and dinners that equip and educate us around the Biblical call for justice. We love what they're doing and it would be great to see you at some of their events! Find their facebook page here.
Christians in Sport is a group for Christian sports players who aspire to reach the world of sport for Christ here at Exeter uni. They meet each week to pray for teammates, read the Bible and explore how their passion for sport and faith in Jesus can go together. Through the year they put on evangelistic events where sports people can hear the good news of Jesus. If you're keen to get involved, contact Jen or Jono.
