AOCF: Rain never deters true BBQ lovers

Despite the drizzle members of the AOCF met at Judges Bay Saturday 14 March for the first social of the year.  Sausages, hamburgers and lots of conversation plus a guitar under the tents meant many new members as well as a few grads could mingle and make friendships. If you missed out this time; don't worry. We have loads of events including weekly dinners after OCF meetings.

Canterbury: Orientation Buzz

The University of Canterbury Christian Union and International Christian Fellowship have been busy at Orientation this year, welcoming new students to join communities of mission and discipleship on campus.

CU and ICF stalls were part of the Enrolment Week process this year, as students recieved their ID cards. Student leaders spent the whole week greeting students, and handing out flyers. This led to many contacts being made, especially in the residential halls. Clubs Days at the College of Education, and the main campus, provided more opportunities to make contact with interested people.

Around 100 students gathered for Christian Union's Orientation BBQ - from a broad range of backgrounds, including a few who came just for the food. In the following week, around 85 students were plugged into small groups. The CU has two clusters of Bible study groups, which meet in large student flats The Village and The Castle, as well as other groups in the residential halls. These groups attract some students who are investigating Christianity for themselves.

The International Christian Fellowship ran Kiwi 101, a kiwi culture night for new international students. Although this was a new initiative for ICF, there is interest in running similar culture evenings in the future. The ICF Bible study has around 30 students involved this year.

CU President Paul Denmead says he has been overwhelmed by the response to initiatives this year. It is exciting to see the level of commitment among student leaders, and prayerfulness for people to turn to Christ.
