Christian Orthodox Society
FaithIn our weekly meetings we discuss relevant and current topics from the point of view of our faith. We also dedicate periods in the year to studying certain books of the bible. We pride ourselves in offering an in depth education of both old and new testament and in understanding who God's is and what His intention for our lives.
Past topics have included:
- The History of The Church
- Presumed Contradictions in the Bible
- Evolution: Fact or Fiction
- Life After Death
- A Life of Love
Books of the Bible Completed:
- 1 Thessalonians
And of course we have lots of socials and day trips. If you love to dine out then you won't be disappointed. We also organised a day to trip to a Coptic Orthodox Monastery last year which involved helping out at their farm and spending time with the monks learning about our Lord Christ and ways to improve our spiritual life with Him.
Last year we also tried doing an outreach; we gave out free bottles of water to students in front of the union. It was a new experience for all of us but it was well received. It provided us with the opportunity to talk about religion and Christianity with our fellow students.
All of our clubs and societies are run by a committee.
A committee is a team of people that lead, organise and publicise a group within your Students' Union.
It can be really rewarding as well as being a great way to gain experience and invaluable skills for your future career.
