Forum Wales

Get started in CU Leadership with Christian Union leaders from across Wales.

Be trained, equipped and released for student mission

From the morning and evening celebrations, to a host of role specific seminars, our team of UCCF Christian Union Staff Workers will ensure that you have everything you need to carry out your CU leadership responsibilities for the coming year.

Share ideas and be supported

Forum Wales gives you the opportunity to meet with CU leaders from across the region so you can share ideas, pray for student mission and stand with one another as you lead your Christian Union this year.

Who’s it for?

Exec Committee

Are you on the CU Executive Committee? There are a number of training sessions specifically to train and envision you as an exec, to work together as a team. These will include specific skills training designed to make every member of your team more effective in motivating your CUs for mission, from within their role. So whatever your leadership role on or off exec, we will help you get off to the best start, as you begin to think how you can serve and lead your CU.

Small Group Leaders

The UCCF team will put on specialist CU small group leaders’ training seminars for those involved with leading small, hall, cell or college groups. You will be trained in how to lead your group humbly, faithfully and with a missional focus.

Other Leadership Roles

If you are working with international students, part of the mission or events week planning team or are involved with any other type of CU leadership role, Forum Walesgives you the opportunity to be inspired, encouraged and equipped for your role.

Small CUs

If you are part of a small CU, you are likely to be helping lead it even if you’re not officially a leader. Bring along the group from your CU and we will help you think through how to apply a cutting edge small CU mission strategy. 

College Reps

If you’re a Hall Group or Connect Group Leader at Aberystwyth, Bangor, Cardiff or Swansea then there’s a special track for you, helping you to make the most of the unique opportunities for making Jesus known.
