Catz Christian Union


St Catharine's College CU is a group of Christians in St Catharine's College. Our aim is to make Jesus Christ known to students in college, as well as to help each other to grow in our relationship with God. You can read more about us below.

Coming to Catz in October 2019?

We've got loads of stuff for Freshers below.

About Us

The SCCCU exists to make Jesus Christ known in St Catharine's College. We are part of the Cambridge Inter-Collegiate Christian Union, CICCU. We don't have any links to any particular church – we welcome Christians from all backgrounds!

What do we do?

We meet together every week, for college group (Bibile study and games) on a Saturday evening and to pray together on a Friday morning (with breakfast!). College group and the prayer meeting are both great chances to grow together as a community, to encourage each other in reaching out to the students around us and to pray for each other and our college and university.

Every few weeks we also put on an evangelistic event, such as a text-a-toastie: students text in a question about Christianity, and a student from the CU brings a free toastie to their door, and chats about the answer to their question.

Where and when do we meet?

College group: Saturday 1830-1930 in the OCR. We often stick around for a bit after this to chat and play some games.
College prayer: Friday 0800-0900 in a CU member's room (Woodlark 6). If you have a 9AM, come for as long as you can make!

Can I come along?

Of course! Catz CU's primary purpose is to spread the good news about Jesus, so whether you're already a Christian seeking to be built up, or someone who is only just starting to investigate Christianity, we'd love to have you with us!

We'd love for you to join us on the freshaway before term starts. It will be a chance for all the freshers (from all of the colleges and with some of us 'older ones') to go away and get excited about Jesus and a for some time of prayer, worship, activities and getting to know each other better. It would be wonderful to have you with us - drop us an email if you're interested in coming and there's more info here!

Church-Search Breakfasts

For the first 3 weeks of Michaelmas term, we put on a breakfast every Sunday morning (9.30-11.30 in the OCR) before walking to church together. There are lots of great churches in Cambridge, many of which are attended by members of the Catz CU, so we hope that coming to breakfast and hearing a bit about each should make it much easier to find a church you like! If you have any questions about churches in Cambridge, or just want to know a bit more, then let us know.
