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 UCD CU.

We’ve been blessed so much in CU so far this year. We’ve been able to get to know lots of people at our events from fresher’s week to now, Christians and non–Christians.

Our weekend away in Drewstown house went really well. We listened to God’s Word being preached and some even said they were able to get things back on track with God. We had lots of chats about what faith in our age looks like on Saturday afternoon while doing some water colour painting and having tea. As usual we had lots of fun and good friendships were formed and strengthened.

    We had two iCafé (International Café) events where international students and Irish students got to know each other more. The events provide opportunities for internationals to get to know Irish culture too.

    Cookie for a question is a fantastic way that God has been working in UCD. A few members have been faithfully getting out on campus every week inviting people to ask questions about faith. It’s a great way to start conversations that go deeper than usual. 

    A number of UCD students enjoyed great teaching and fellowship at the CU Big Weekend Away in Castledaly Manor. Those who went got to meet people from CUs in Leinster and Connacht and they’re still learning from what Monty spoke about.

    • Please pray for our ongoing weekly meetings and outreach events. We have some other big events this semester including a Christmas event and a hot topic event ‘Don’t all religions lead to God’.
    • Pray also for motivation for CU members to get involved in events like evangelism as the semester wears on and exams get closer.
    • Praise God for a good relationship with the SU and other religious societies. We would appreciate prayer for the committee as they make decisions about getting involved with events with others on campus. Pray for wisdom, discernment as we seek to stay true to the gospel.
