At Lancaster University the Events Week – ‘STORY Lancaster’ – took place at the end of February and was an amazing time!
Each night we had good numbers, 120 - 200 of which were international students. The evenings started with a meal and then followed by an international talk, which I gave, interspersed with testimonies and music features. Then later there were main session talks with Bruce Gillingham. It was great to have a blended programme for internationals and British students.
There has been an excellent partnership between Friends International and UCCF, which was really positive and a good model which could be adopted elsewhere.
19 people indicated praying prayers of commitments, 5 came along to a follow up course the following Monday, and a number of people are now doing the Uncover studies.
