proclaiming Jesus Christ at university
We are a fellowship which stands for Jesus.
The aims of our fellowship can be summarised in this short statement…
Evangelical Students (ES) is a community of Christian students who seek to GROW in God’s Word and be TRAINed together to REACH the campus and the world for Christ.
In practice, it is our prayer that students in ES would increasingly grow…
* to know God better through disciplined Bible reading
* to be dependent upon God in faithful prayer
* in our love for Christ, and reflect His love for others
* a mature and assured faith, exhibiting fruit of the Spirit
* in gospel unity as the body of Christ on campus
* to seek the kingdom of God above all
We grow in our love and knowledge of God together as we study God’s Word, in small groups, Bible Talks and on camps.
…being trained to…
* personally understand and interpret the Bible
* live faithful and prayerful lives, persevering to the end
* share the gospel, and lead others to know Christ
* joyfully and sacrificially serve others in the cause of Christ
We want to train disciples of Christ in the skills and character to serve him wherever we are – at uni, and for the rest of our lives.
…in order to reach others by…
* boldly and creatively proclaiming Jesus as Lord, in the context of public events and personal relationships
* supporting other gospel ministries here and abroad
* raising up future gospel workers from within our fellowship
We invite you to join us in this mission on campus, and to grow in confidence as you share your faith.
