For regular activities on campus email us here and come say 'Hi' at the CU stall at Guild Fair days.
We also have these camps and conferences below with CU's from other campuses. Chat to us and see more details in 'events' on the AFES website here.
Summer Equip - January/February
Join us for Summer Equip and be trained to serve Jesus more effectively on your campus and beyond.
Choose one out of three training electives. Each is run over 6 sessions in 2.5 hr blocks. This means you can get some training under your belt before uni begins as well as catch up with friends there after the long summer break.
Kickstart - (February)
At the beginning of each year (around the second week in February), CU groups run Kickstart! – a 3 day camp for all Christian students who will be starting any of the Perth Universities. It has been running for over 20 years and is still the best way to start uni life as a Christian!
Kickstart! is aimed primarily at Christians who are coming to uni for the first time, sort of like an ‘Pre-Orientation Day Orientation’! Uni will throw up lots of challenges but Kickstart is designed to help you connect with upper years on your campus and think about your time ahead at uni from a Christian perspective so you can hit the ground running. And you’ll love it and meet lots of new friends!
Mid Year Conference (MYC) - mid July
Mid Year Conference is another one not to miss! It's a 5 day camp, held in Perth and a great opportunity to explore a key Christian topic, dig deep into God’s word, sing his praises and enjoy the company of lots of other Christian students.
National Training Event (NTE) & Local Church Mission - after end of year exams
NTE is a 5 day conference for students from Christian Unions all over Australia. This is an opportunity to be equipped with great training to help you in your Christian life on campus and beyond. In addition there's great talks, great music, great Bible studies, and great opportunities to grow in your knowledge and love of Jesus. It has traditionally been held in Canberra with heaps of other students from across the nation. But is has also been held in regional hubs in Perth - see AFES website for details and costs.
Mission is the chance to spend 5 days serving Jesus with a local church in Perth. Our aim is to help them share the gospel in their community. You will get some hands on experience doing real, live ministry, trying something you haven't done before and working as a team. Cost $0. Mission will be held before or after NTE
If NTE is in Canberra then Sightseeing in Canberra/Sydney will also be included!
*It is possible to come to all or part of NTE/Mission. Mark your diaries and plan to do the whole thing at least once during uni. Starting in first or second year gives you the opportunity to go again, cos you'll love it! Registrations for both are on the same AFES page.
