On the Kingston Freshers' Facebook pages there’s a lot of excitement whirling around the upcoming club nights. If you want to get the best out of the week, you need to start planning now...
For instance, if you're hoping to attend the ‘The Big Icebreaker’ party you can't just rock up with your fingers crossed! You need to book early, order a wristband, and work out how you’re going to get there.
And of course, that’s not the only thing that requires planning. Moving to a new place can be daunting.
Where will you live? How will you get there? Who could you connect with before you arrive? How and where do you register for university? When does your timetable come through?
I’m sure at least some of these questions have been occupying your mind for the past few weeks.
But here’s a question: "How much energy have you put into planning which Church you’d like to attend?"
If you’re not a Christian, perhaps the answer is: “none at all.”
But why not? University is a great place to investigate what the Bible really says about who Jesus really is. At Cornerstone we aim to explain the Christian message in simple language from the Bible every Sunday. You’d be welcome to come along, listen and ask any questions.
And if you are a Christian, I hope the answer would be “lots!”
In Colossians chapter 1 (The Bible) Paul gives us an insight into his priorities for one particular Church:
“…Since the day we heard about you, we have not stopped praying for you. We continually ask God to fill you with the knowledge of his will through all the wisdom and understanding that the Spirit gives, so that you may live a life worthy of the Lord and please him in every way: bearing fruit in every good work, growing in the knowledge of God…” (Col 1. 9-10)
At Cornerstone we want to help our students:
- Live a Life Worthy of the Lord– The Lord Jesus is a wonderful Saviour and we want to help you understand His Word so that you can live for His glory at University.
- Bear Fruit In Every Good Work– We run lots of different evangelistic events on campus because we want to help you share the good news of Jesus with your mates. That’s part of what it means to be ‘fruitful’.
- Grow In The Knowledge of God– So that when you come to the end of your course you will know and love the Lord more than you did on day 1.
If you jump over onto our Students Page you’ll get an idea of exactly how we hope to do these things in the upcoming year.
Also, on Sunday the 23rd and Sunday the 30th of September there will be an opportunity to join us for lunch after the morning service. Over dessert we’ll get together and go through our exciting program.
If you've got any questions, don't hesitate to get in touch.
We look forward to welcoming you. See a video from 2 of our students.
