This year CF and ICF worked together to plan a week of activities and outreach. We started each day with a prayer meeting and held various events during the day, all building up to a meal and an evangelistic talk on the Thursday night.
One of the daytime events was a BBQ outside the library where we handed out approximately 600 invitations to the dinner. On the back of the flyers were testimonies of students in CF and ICF about what God is doing in their lives. People seemed to receive the invitations well and were generally interested in what we were about and why we were doing it.
We also ran a squash tournament that attracted the more competitive students on campus and provided an opportunity to invite non-Christian friends along. Every week CF provides toasted sandwiches for students coming back from the pub, but this week we made it more evangelistic by encouraging students to ask questions about Jesus in exchange for a free toastie. The questions were mostly about evolution and the Trinity and we were surprised and encouraged by how deep and well thought-out some of the questions were.
The meal attracted a mix of international and domestic students both Christian and non-Christian. The night flowed well and the speaker spoke clearly about the work of God in his life, challenging us to consider God’s will in our lives. The evening created many opportunities for further conversations with the friends who had come along.
