Student Lunch runs on Sundays after the 11.30am service. There’s home-cooked food, as well as a chance to catch up with friends, chat about the sermon and meet people from other colleges. We then have a short talk on a topic relevant to our lives – such as friendship, studying, dating, church, the Holy Spirit, depression… There’s plenty of time for discussion in groups and a chance at the end to ask questions to the speaker. We’re all done by 2pm.
"I always look forward to student lunch both for the physical food and for the spiritual food. It's the time when the congregation feels most like a family - when everyone has a chance not only to have lunch together, catch up from the week and chat about what we've just heard from the Bible, but also a pretty unique chance to hear teaching designed to apply Bible truths to the often confusing world of trying to live for the Lord Jesus at Cambridge."
Bella, a third year Natsci student at Emmanuel College.
