While our expenditure varies year to year, here is a more rough breakdown of our main expenditure.
Freshers Week ~ £300
In order to introduce new students to the CU and spread the Gospel among all the other events during Freshers' week, the Christian Union host a week of events. These events not only aim to introduce Christian students to the local Church, but also to introduce students from other backgrounds to the Good News of Jesus.
Christmas ~ £1,500
This cost includes the price of a Christmas banquet for CU members and their friends. The banquet includes a meal, which is partially subsidized, and a short Gospel focused talk. To reach the wider student community the Christian Union host a carol service where we host a longer talk as well as distributing Gospels.
Events Week ~ £4,000
Our Events week is our greatest expenditure. Existing as an extension of our week-to-week events, this week is a focused effort with 4 lunch events including lunch, 4 international events including food, and 4 evening events including pudding. Each of these events clear explains, and defends the Gospel as well as providing a platform to engage with Christians.
Please sincerely consider financially helping us as a Christian Union, we want to see everyone have the opportunity to respond to the gospel and our plans are big, we just need the prayer and funds.
