The CU is a place for everybody and is made up of people from different backgrounds. It is a place to have a great time with people and explore Christianity.

We’d love to welcome you to our weekly meeting, UNITE, where we meet to worship, pray, equip and learn from God’s word. This takes place every Tuesday in the Christ Church Chapel starting at 7:30. We've got loads going on across the week though. Check out our TERM CARD to see all!

But who runs the CU? While we see the Christian Union as a communual place for people there are some people here with leadership roles. This is the committee! Check them out HERE

At Christ Church we believe that they is more to Christianity than just Sunday mornings. That's why we have events going on all through the week for different people and different reasons! Prayer meetings, Tea and Toast, and worship nights are just a few of the things you can come to expect from Christ Church Christian Union.

To help you work out what happens when, below is our term card that should hopefully keep you informed as to what events and going ons are going on at the Christian Union. Never miss an event! Remember, to keep FULLY up to date, make sure you've liked our FACEBOOK PAGE

We believe that it is important to look at things outside of the CU as well as connecting to what we do on Tuesdays and beyond. This is why we have put together this page with useful links to a few websites that may be of interest. We also have a full list of churches around Canterbury that has been put together to allow you to learn more about what they have to offer the students of Christ Church.

This is where recordings of any of events will appear also! Coming soon!
