CU Impact Groups are at the heart of CU life, helping and equipping students to live and speak for Jesus whilst at uni. Impact Groups are all about being impacted by God’s word, then seeking to impact the university for good in Jesus’ name. Whether you’re yet a follower or not, they’re a wonderful place to make friends, get connected into CU life and receive help in finding a local church.
