Christian students on a mission to reach London
Christian students from across London are joining together in an evangelistic mission project in the spring.
Uncover: the London CU Project is now in its third year of city-wide mission events, and runs from 23 to 27 January in central London and 20-24 February in south-west London.
Its aim is to unite the churches and the 600 Christian Unions across the city to make Christ known in the capital.
Uncover is a series of six Bible studies in Luke's gospel looking at the life of Jesus and written by Becky Manley Pippert, international author and mission speaker.
The theme of 'Uncover' is based on Luke's prologue in which he writes: "I have carefully investigated everything from the beginning, and have decided to write an orderly account so that you may know the certainty of the things you have been told."
It encourages non-Christians to investigate Jesus' story for themselves and is designed for students to study with their university friends.
This year, UCCF has launched the London CU survey to ask students two questions: what is your favourite film, and if you could ask God one question, what would it be?
The results will help shape the week of lunchtime and evening mission events happening in January across central London with Krish Kandiah, the Alliance's executive director: churches in mission; and in February in south-west London with Michael Ots.
Natasha Kasprowicz, London team leader at UCCF, said: "Mission in London is gaining momentum and we would love you to be part of it. Please encourage any students you know to get involved with their CU. Please pray as we share the gospel on campuses across London."
Evangelistic carol services are also taking place in venues throughout central and south-west London on 6 December.
