Welcome from all of us here at TCDCU! We hope you’re beginning to settle in well and wish to help you in this process. We meet every Thursday at 7:30pm and have loads of other activities for you to get stuck right in to! Feel free to ask any of us what there is to be involved in and we’ll happily help you out.
While CU is great it is never meant to be a replacement for a church community. Getting plugged into a church in Dublin can really help you settle in and provide fellowship and discipleship outside of what the CU has to offer. We’ve put together this guide with a list of churches that our members have connections with so that you can check them out for yourselves. Hopefully this can help you find a church family where you can continue to grow!
The CU will be holding a Church Crawl over the next few weeks to further aid you in finding a church. CU members will be travelling around some local churches and you can go along with them to visit and hopefully find a church to settle in. Keep an eye out for emails regarding this! Feel free to email me if you have any questions at all. I can be got hold of through the CU’s email -firstname.lastname@example.org – or through my personal email – email@example.com. Hopefully this all helps you settle in! I’m so excited for what this year has to bring!
Student Events in our Local Churches
Christ City Church
Steve Vaughan, minister of Christ City Church, has a real heart for students and would love to help, accommodating and welcoming new students to their church. He wrote this blog a couple of years ago: http://stevevaughan10.com/2014/09/01/5-ways-to-ensure-you-flourish-as-achristian-student-in-dublin/ considering 5 ways to ensure you flourish as a Christian student in Dublin which may be of help if you are struggling to live out your faith as you start university.
City Church Dublin
City Church will be having two consecutive Student Sundays on September 25th and October 2nd. Join us for the service and stay after for a free lunch and a great time to hang out. See you there.
Grosvenor Road Baptist Church
Grosvenor has a very active student programme, specifically holding a student welcome Sunday on September 25th at both 11am and 7pm. Once a month at Sunday@7, there is a home cooked meal immediately after the service followed by a talk, discussion and hang out time. Student Life Groups also offer an opportunity to study the bible in greater detail with other students after a hot meal during the week.
St. Marks has lots to offer students. Chapel Group is for college-aged people, between 18 to 24 years, who are passionate about Jesus. Discipleship, community and evangelism are our heartbeat, and we also have a whole lot of fun! We meet every Wednesday at 7.30pm in the attic of the church. Looking forward to seeing you there!
