Think of the first time you ventured away from home into a strange town, trying to settle into a new church and struggling with the vast difference between uni and school (or work)… It can be a pretty overwhelming experience.
This is where the adopt-a-student idea sprang from. It is one way that our church family can lovingly support and encourage the uni students in following our Lord Jesus. It is a great opportunity to spur each other on in serving and giving glory to God.
At the end of last year, there were 24 families who put their hands up to adopt a student, which is such a blessing! A big thank you to those families! We now have 8 students who have been adopted by families in our church. It has been great hearing from the students and families about how they enjoyed having meals together and getting to know someone who they normally wouldn’t meet.
So, if you are a university student, who is apart of our church family, and you would like to be adopted, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thank you again to the families for being willing to open up their homes to the university students in our church family.
