On the Kingston Freshers’ Facebook pages there’s a lot of excitement whirling around the upcoming club nights. If you want to get the best out of the week, you need to start planning now…
For instance, if you’re hoping to attend the ‘Icebreaker’ party you can’t just rock up with your fingers crossed! You need to book early, order a wristband, and work out how you’re going to get there.
And of course, that’s not the only thing that requires planning. Moving to a new place can be fairly daunting.
Where will you live? How will you get there? Who could you connect with before you arrive? How and where do you register for university? When does your timetable come through?
I’m sure at least some of these questions have been occupying your mind for the past few weeks.
But here’s a question: “How much energy have you put into planning which Church you’d like to attend?”
If you’re not a Christian, perhaps the answer is: “none at all.”
But why not? University is a great place to investigate what the Bible really says about who Jesus really is. At Cornerstone we aim to explain the Christian message in simple language from the Bible every Sunday. You’d be welcome to come along, listen and ask any questions.
And if you are a Christian, I hope the answer would be “lots!”
In Colossians chapter 1 (The Bible) Paul gives us an insight into his priorities for one particular Church:
“…Since the day we heard about you, we have not stopped praying for you. We continually ask God to fill you with the knowledge of his will through all the wisdom and understanding that the Spirit gives, so that you may live a life worthy of the Lord and please him in every way: bearing fruit in every good work, growing in the knowledge of God…” (Col 1. 9-10)
At Cornerstone we want to help our students:
If you jump over onto our Students Page you’ll get an idea of exactly how we hope to do these things in the upcoming year.
Also, on Sunday the 24th of September and Sunday the 1st of October we’ll be hosting a Newcomer’s Student Lunch after the morning service.
If you’ve got any questions, don’t hesitate to get in touch.
We look forward to welcoming you.
