It was graduates who sold their possessions to send their mates overseas to start CUs where Christ was not known. It was grads who deliberately did postgrad studies in Irish campuses without CUs, in order to start them. It was graduates who held the ropes for them in prayer as they went. The vital work continues today across the island, as new generations of students, concerned for effective mission on campus, play their part. Will you join them?
Prayer groups for the Christian Unions exist formally across the island, as well as having churches and prayer triplets praying informally all over the world. Some meet weekly, some monthly and some more irregularly. We list those that we’re aware of, which are interdenominational and free for anyone to join.
Contact us if you want help starting one. We can provide free prayer resources, speakers, and contacts to others in the area who are interested in such a thing.
