Join us for a series of talks about how Christianity is more relevant than you think. From the existence of suffering in the world to the pursuit of happiness, we will have a number of academics addressing how Christianity fits in today’s world. All are welcome to attend and engage with the topics at hand, in a space where all perspectives and questions are welcome.
The Fellowship of Overseas Christian University Students (FOCUS) is a group for international students and others who want to serve them. Whether you are already a Christian or just exploring it, we would love to meet you!
Living at a residential college is a unique experience and a unique opportunity to live for Jesus. We have groups running in several of the residential colleges at UWA, so come along and get to know God better, as well as other college students. Find out more about our college groups
At Tuesday's Public Meeting, we explored a particular weekend in history which totally changed the world. If you missed it, come join us tomorrow at our Thursday Public Meeting! We meet at 12pm in the Chapel and would love to have you along 😊 ... See MoreSee Less
In light of the current Guild elections, we've asked the parties for their stances towards the topic of freedom of speech. Here are the statements we were given:
Star: "We are all for people to freely expressing their political/religious/other beliefs, except where the expression of that belief is hate speech, or trivialises the experience of a marginalised group, in line with current Guild policy! [We] don't expect that this will create any problems for CU! Stuff like the seminar series that you have about people’s questions approaching Christianity encourage good discussion and engagement with faith and we think they are really great!"
Launch: "The student body of UWA is diverse and represents a range of different perspectives. [Our] view is that the best way to protect these different groups is to ensure free speech is rigorously defended on campus. Consequently, Launch believes strongly in the right of groups such as CU to speak freely on matters of faith and conscience. [We] fully believe that universities ought to be places of open discussion and debate and that censorship is rarely an appropriate response to unpopular views. It would only be with great reluctance that Launch would ever sanction any form of censorship. That being said, Launch does not support speech that involves inciting violence against a particular person or group of people. Of course, such a restriction in no way impedes upon the freedom of clubs such as your own who seek to genuinely live out their faith in a respectful manner.
We understand that there has been some trouble at other universities around the state/country, where religious debate and discussion have been shut down, and that the Christian Unions/Clubs etc. are forced to disaffiliate. Launch will always be strongly opposed to any moves to disaffiliate/shut down CU, and we commit to ensuring that CU is able to continue hold weekly public meetings, small groups, and other activities. We believe that clubs and societies are what make campus life at UWA so great, so activities promoting this engagement will have our full support." ... See MoreSee Less
Last night, our student committee made a feature on the International Fellowship of Evangelical Students (IFES) FaceBook Page!
IFES are passionate about seeing the gospel shared and seeing students equipped to live lives for God's glory. They support locally-led student movements in over 160 different countries, including the Christian Union at UWA! Check them out! 😊🌏Building friendships is becoming increasingly challenging as the university is gradually shifting towards an online learning style. All our lectures are available online so it’s difficult to get to know people when they’re not on campus. Another challenge is that most Australians live pretty comfortable lives and don’t see much of a need for a god in their life. Pray that God will soften their hearts so that they would be willing to hear and engage with the good news of Christ Jesus!
We have had a number of students going through Uncover (sections of Luke’s gospel) this year with non-Christians. It’s great to see non-Christians eager to look into the Bible and find out who Jesus is and why he matters. Through reading Uncover, we’ve seen two students this year become Christians. It’s a joy to see God at work!
