Last week CICCU (Cambridge Inter Collegiate Christian Union) had its events week, with lunchtime talks focusing on the big questions that are often asked about Christianity such as why is there suffering and is the Bible relevant. The evening talks looked at who Jesus is, with one of the talks including the testimony of Shane Taylor who was one of the UK’s most dangerous prisoners who became a Christian during his time in prison. Every afternoon there was a café in Cindies (officially known as Ballare), and the novelty value of seeing it in daylight certainly paid off. In Robinson we hosted a text-a-toastie event, in which we served nearly seventy people, answering any questions they may have had about Jesus or Christianity in general. Due to the success of the event we are hosting another one in a couple of weeks’ time but under the name of ‘Google-form-a-grilled-sandwich’ so keep an eye out for that! And this time we will remember to include cheese on the list of fillings, so apologies for that error last time! Robinson Christian Union meet every Monday evening 9-10 in J8 in which we read a bit of the Bible and discuss it. Our main focus is building a community so every term there are a couple of socials such as going to the pub, and by building a solid community we are able to serve the rest of college, mainly through the vessel of free food. Anyone is welcome to come on a Monday night, even if it just out of curiosity to see what we do. We also have a weekly prayer meeting in J8 on a Friday morning at 8am followed by breakfast, and again, anyone is welcome. This years’ reps are Katie Whitehouse, David Reavley, and George Anderson, so if you have any questions please don’t hesitate to contact us.
