Christian Union is one of the Christian groups on campus, with people from lots of different types of churches, dedicated to following Jesus Christ, sharing that with others and making solid friendships. We exist for both: Christians who want to understand and live out their faith in a more mature way; AND for those who aren’t Christians but want check out Jesus’ claims, explore the meaning of life and ask questions. We believe that Jesus is Good News and by trusting him we are given: a relationship with God; forgiveness for our sins; and a new life with which to serve God.
