The Christian Union meets as a unified body of students who love and follow Jesus every Thursday evening on campus. Christian Union main meetings include a time of worship, prayer, encouragement and teaching. Speakers come to visit our CU each week from many different places and ministries. We are blessed to have a wide range of speakers from various places that come to teach and encourage us in our goal to know Christ and make Him known at university.
Regular attendance to CU meetings should be a key element of a Christian student’s life while at Bath University. However; CU IS NOT A CHURCH! It is a mission team of students who reach out to other students, therefore attendance of CU should not come at the expense of involvement within a local church.
Making CU a weekly commitment while at university brings forward countless blessings and opportunities for Christians at university.
The CU meets every Thursday evening at 7:30pm on campus (usually University Hall).
There will be tea and coffee served prior to the meeting from 6:45pm [for the first few weeks of term] which provides opportunity for students to catch up with friends and meet others they don’t know as well within the CU.
"Being part of the Christian Union is such an amazing blessing during your time at University. It’s so brilliant that because of what we have in Jesus we are a family of brothers and sisters as we try to live and speak for Christ here in Bath. At first I found main meetings quite daunting with a lot of people there but very quickly went from not knowing many to feeling completely at home amongst everyone. It’s been so great to be able to get involved in the evangelistic events which the CU puts on, and also being able to chat about and pray for how we are being lights in the little corners that God has placed us in"

Hebrews 10: 24, 25 - "And let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds, not giving up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but encouraging one another and all the more as you see the Day approaching"
