At Student Life, we have a wide range of activities designed to welcome new students, build friendships and engage people in spiritual questions and exploring Jesus' claims for themselves.

Here's the timetable of stuff we've got planned so far. Please pray for each of the events and that we will be a real blessing to the students, that lots of people will join in and our community will grow, and that many students will get to share in the wonderful news of the gospel.
