What we do

Our time as students at Warwick allows us to get to know people from all over the UK and the world with varying beliefs and opinions. The Christian Union allows us to make the most of this unique time in our lives.

We run a number of weekly events, such as Equip and 5:20s (Hall groups), to encourage us in our personal evangelism and deepen our relationship with God as we grow towards Christian maturity; there are also specific events for the international community each week, such as CUIBS and Globe, which seek to welcome, build relationships and share the good news of Jesus with our friends from overseas.

Each term we also hold two Events Weeks, which we use to build upon the personal evangelism we do with our non-Christian friends throughout the rest of the term. We have the best news in the world to tell: how could we not share it with others?

Our Vision:To give every student at the University of Warwick an opportunity to hear and respond to the gospel of Jesus Christ
Who we are
Houseparty 2013

The CU is a group of Christian students, from all sorts of different backgrounds who unite around the core truths of Christianity. We aim to encourage each other to grow in our personal relationship with God through understanding more of the amazing truths of the gospel and becoming more willing to spread this good news.

We have a committee who give up time from their studies to lead and serve the CU. Of course, they can’t run it all on their own, so we have various teams to help run our events. Please get in touch if you want to help out.

Doctrinal Basis

Doctrinal Basis

  1. There is one God in three persons, the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit.
  2. God is sovereign in creation, revelation, redemption and final judgement.
  3. The Bible, as originally given, is the inspired and infallible Word of God. It is the supreme authority in all matters of belief and behaviour.
  4. Since the fall, the whole of humankind is sinful and guilty, so that everyone is subject to God’s wrath and condemnation.
  5. The Lord Jesus Christ, God’s incarnate Son, is fully God; he was born of a virgin; his humanity is real and sinless; he died on the cross, was raised bodily from death and is now reigning over heaven and earth.
  6. Sinful human beings are redeemed from the guilt, penalty and power of sin only through the sacrificial death once and for all time of their representative and substitute, Jesus Christ, the only mediator between them and God.
  7. Those who believe in Christ are pardoned all their sins and accepted in God’s sight only because of the righteousness of Christ credited to them; this justification is God’s act of undeserved mercy, received solely by trust in him and not by their own efforts.
  8. The Holy Spirit alone makes the work of Christ effective to individual sinners, enabling them to turn to God from their sin and to trust in Jesus Christ.
  9. The Holy Spirit lives in all those he has regenerated. He makes them increasingly Christlike in character and behaviour and gives them power for their witness in the world.
  10. The one holy universal church is the Body of Christ, to which all true believers belong.
  11. The Lord Jesus Christ will return in person, to judge everyone, to execute God’s just condemnation on those who have not repented and to receive the redeemed to eternal glory.
