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.
“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!”
Praise God for:
