Freshers Week

Christian Union mission week dates

'Give praise to the Lord, proclaim His name; make known among the nations what He has done.' – Psalm 105:1

Mission weeks are a key part of the CU calendar. During these weeks, CUs put on top quality evening and lunchtime events that enable their whole campus to easily explore Christianity. In some larger cities, such as Edinburgh or London, CUs in the area come together to hold a joint mission week, extending their reach and encouraging one another in mission.

Use this list of mission week dates to pray that many students would hear and respond to the gospel of Jesus Christ during these weeks.

To find out how to specifically pray for the CUs during these weeks, check out our prayer diary here.
