CU in the Spotlight

Every month we like to shine the spotlight on one of our CUs around the island, to find out a bit more about what they have been up to and what things are coming up for them!
This month we hear from Maynooth CU.


Emma from Maynooth CU writes: 

“So this year at Maynooth CU brought about a bunch of new things… New committee, new vision, new logos, new banner, new additions to the CU room (including some pretty lights and a magnetic dartboard!) 

We have had a lot of new events and have been pretty busy this year. We decided at the start of the year that we wanted to have more of a presence on campus and I think we have achieved that this year. We made a big effort to have and plan many events including a Christmas carol service and an (upcoming) Easter lunchbar and Grill A Christian event.

The day of the Christmas carol event was our first real push at getting the CU out there. We had a sign set up asking people the question of ‘What does Christmas mean to you?’ and lots of baked goods. It was a great success. Lots of people passed by and got involved, curious to see what was going on. The Carol Service that evening also went well and a few people from outside the CU attended. 

We had another style of event we had never done before, which was a prayer and praise night. This was a great chance for us as a CU to reflect and pray about upcoming events and pray about the CUI movement all around Ireland and the world!”

How to pray for Maynooth CU:

Praise God for:

  • Successful events so far and a steady outcome of people attending CU
  • Good relationships with the SU and funding
  • A great committee and being able to meet often


Pray for:

  • New committee members as 3 out of 4 of us our leaving next year.
  • Growth of friendship and faith within the CU
  • Lunch bar this month and the planning involved in that and that many from outside the CU will attend
  • Grill A Christian event that will take place the evening of the Lunchbar (14 March is a busy day!)
