About Christian Union (SB)
????SBCU is Christian society devoted to spreading God’s love and the good news on campus and beyond.
We are open to all, whatever your beliefs, doubts or questions may be.
Here is a rough weekly timetable of what we do every week!????
Globe is a weekly meeting for internationals and non-internationals to meet, learn about each others cultures and enjoy tea and cake!
It takes place on the Top floor of the Barn in the postgraduate space starting at 7pm. If you wish to hear more about it, please speak to Kirsty More, our international coordinator, or Val from the Chaplaincy. Search “SB Globe Cafe” to join the Facebook group.
COVID Changes: currently Globe meets via zoom.
Rooted is our main weekly meeting, where we get to catch up, play games, and read the Bible together. The Bible calls us to be 'rooted and established in love' (Ephesians 3:17), and we believe that, by meeting together, we can understand the truth and extent of God's love for us! We love SB and want everyone here to have the opportunity to read, discover and enquire about what it means to follow Jesus, whether you’ve been a Christian all your life or never even picked up a Bible. We have loads of events and opportunities coming up throughout the year to get to know the people in our CU and to find out a bit more about our society and what we believe.
Rooted is every week, from 7.30pm in the Open Prayer Room (B Floor of the Barn). We would love to see you there so please come along or speak to one of our two Rooted leaders: Jessica Stinton or Sarah Kelleher.
COVID Changes: currently Rooted meets over zoom.
We believe it is really important to join a church where you feel supported and can grow in faith.
The majority of SBCU attend Sutton Bonington Baptist Church, which is located a short walk away in Sutton Bonington Village,
we also have members who attend Beeston Free church and St Nics church in Nottingham.
Lifts are usually available, and if there are any specific churches you’d like to try out- we are more than happy to attend with you!
COVID changes: some churches are meeting, some are on zoom and some are live streaming so there is a wide range of options! Get in touch for more info!
All of our clubs and societies are run by a committee.
A committee is a team of people that lead, organise and publicise a group within your Students’ Union.
It can be really rewarding as well as being a great way to gain experience and invaluable skills for your future career.
