We love Jesus and believe that Jesus Christ is living in us (Colossians 3:4) and growing in us (Ephesians 2:21-22). We very much enjoy Jesus!
The Bible is the living Word of God. It is not a book of dead letters, but it is God’s fresh speaking to us, day by day. The Bible is not just for our doctrinal study, but for our daily eating and being nourished by Christ (John 6:35; Matthew 4:4; Jeremiah 15:16). God’s Word is good for food, we just need to taste and see!
So whether we are:
encouraging one another in our personal times with the Lord,
connecting with companions to read and pray together,
participating in small group Bible studies or church meetings,
or joining in with conferences and events outside of Cambridge…
…our wonderful Lord Jesus Christ is our focus and our centre!
There are many ways we meet together regularly, and we warmly welcome you to join us for any (or all!) of our gatherings and for one-on-one meetups (we will pair you with an older student or graduate).
It is wonderful to have companions to discover and enjoy Jesus Christ together. We are not just individual Christians; we are growing together as members of the Body of Christ!
We also love to meet with those exploring Christ and the Christian life. Have you been asking yourself what is the meaning of your human life? If you have this question or any others, then do get in contact and ask us!

ask your one-on-one companion or small group any questions you have,
share your own experience and enjoyment of speaking Christ,
and pray together for your friends and classmates!
