‘Many CUs have UCCF Leadership Network events throughout the year organised by a CU rep for the Network. These equip students to live and speak for Jesus in subjects in which there is particular opposition to Christianity. Please pray for new leaders to be identified and equipped to serve.’ – Connie Keep, Leadership Network Coordinator
Bucks New CU handed over their leadership at the beginning of January. Praise God for the willingness of the new committee to reach their university with the good news and pray that they would inspire the rest of the CU in outreach.

Pray for both Southampton and Southampton Solent CUs as they head off for a weekend away with CU Staff Worker Niv Lobo. Pray that this weekend would be foundational in equipping them to serve their campuses with the truth of the gospel.

Pray for wise and servant-hearted students to take on leadership roles for the coming year.’ – JP Wright, CU Staff Worker in Durham and Teesside
Worcester CU have added a specific evangelism coordinator role to their committee this year. Pray that this student would be excited by the opportunity that the role provides and would be committed to creating opportunities for campus gospel proclamation.

As students from across Great Britain take on new CU leadership roles, pray that they would draw on the truth of the gospel – knowing that it is in Christ through whom they are justified. Pray that they would come to Him and seek His wisdom and rest.
