At university

Agapé UK has been active on university campuses across the UK for over 50 years. We want to help you navigate the complexities of student life by building communities where people from all backgrounds can discover more about themselves and explore big questions about life, faith, and God.

Exploring your university questions...

God is at work at your university every day. He’s at work in the lives of the people you live with, study with and walk past. Getting to know people, what they are passionate about and why they believe the things they believe is one way to see how God has already been at work on campus without you even realising.

We are invited to join in with God and be part of the way He shares who He is with those He has created. We have an opportunity to see God at work in our personal life – helping us to live in a beautiful way that paints a picture of what He is like for others to see. Part of this is community. The way Christians celebrate God, love each other and care about issues of justice should be one way you can see God at work where you study.

God is also at work through the conversations we have. Listening to others expresses His love. Sharing honestly why Jesus is important to you is a powerful way to show in what ways He is good news. God is at work on our campuses and He’s calling us to join in!

Have you ever wondered what the first disciples would say about their lives looking back? Would they say the promise in John 10:10 that they would have “life in all its fullness” had come true?

It’s hard to imagine they’d do anything but gush in awe about how amazing their lives on earth had turned out to be. Life in all its fullness, of course, is not the same as a charmed life of luck and uninterrupted delight. Their lives were certainly full though – full of challenge, full of passion, full of drama, danger, miracles, wonders and unfathomable joy, and, at the end, for most, a cruel death at the hands of their persecutors. Would Peter, for example, tell you it was worth it all?

Throwing your lot in with God really means letting him take charge. Letting him do whatever He wants, in and through you. Henry Varley challenged his friend D L Moody with these words: “The world has yet to see what God can do with a man fully consecrated to Him”. The more we surrender our lives to God, the less ordinary they will be, and the fuller He will fill them with his purposes for us and for the world.

If you have discovered Jesus and are very glad that you have, it is natural to want to tell others what you have found. In fact, some find it hard to hold it in! Others might be more reticent to “push their faith” on others, and many Christians are getting the feeling that we shouldn’t talk about our faith at all. What is the right approach? How can we be respectful of others, yet share what we have found in Jesus? What does courage look like in an age of silencing believers? And how do we answer some of the big questions of life?

Agapé UK is dedicated to helping people discover Jesus, just as we are on a journey of discovery ourselves. We have a wealth of information, tools, and practical steps you can take to help you figure out the best way for you to share your faith in your context.
