“Church is just for old boring people who have nothing better to do with their old boring lives.”
Most people, whether Christian or not, have probably thought this at some point in their lives and the frenzy of university life can make this statement seem even more correct.
However, we believe that church is far more than just an old people’s home. If you’re a Christian, we’d love to help you continue in your faith during your time at university. The Bible teaches that church is a vital part of the life of a Christian because it allows us to learn about the Scriptures and support each other in our Christian lives. Without a good church, living for God openly, or at all, at university will be significantly more difficult.
If you’re not a believer, or you’re not sure, we hope you’ll come along so we can explain the good news about salvation, that God sent his Son into the world to die for us so that our sins might be forgiven. Whatever your background, the Bible teaches that you’re never too young or too old, too cynical or too dismissive to be saved by Jesus and we hope you’ll start that journey with God during your time at university.
Now, we’re not going to pretend that going to church will instantly solve all your problems, not even those directly connected to being a Christian. You might even be judged by your peers for coming. However, the benefits of being a real Christian, not just someone with a vague belief about God that never affects their lives but someone who really lives for Jesus, far outweigh the disadvantages and we hope to see you soon to help you put the message of the Bible into practice in your university life and beyond.
