Coming to university can be a terrifying prospect. Perhaps this is your first time living away from home, or even first time visiting this country. Well, from the Christian Union we would love to give you a very warm welcome to Cardiff this year. We have a very packed programme of events throughout Freshers week to help everyone settle in. We are united in the Gospel and really look forward to welcoming you into our thriving community of Christians. Please come and say hello, we love freshers in Cardiff! Know that you are already being prayed for and we really hope that this freshers week kick starts your university years as some of the best times of your life.
Fresher’s Week 2017
This is the overall layout of the week, it’s a very busy one! As well as these official events, we also have Gazebo happening from 10-1 everyday, handing out cakes and flyers for people on their way to introductory lectures or fayres etc. Also, we have living water each evening to reach those students that are excited to be away from their parents for the first time so go out every night! We are there to show some love, give out hot drinks and have a conversation with them just showing them that we care!
During the day, we are having Lunch bars in the Embassy Cafe on Cathays terrace. Each day there will be a different talk on subjects that are applicable to freshers and students. Whilst listening to these talks they will be enjoying afternoon tea, with scones and tea etc.
Everyday during the week there will be morning prayer, a devotion and free breakfast! This will be a great way to start the day!!
