College for Christ
“When my heart is overwhelmed, lead me to the rock that is higher than I.” – Psalm 61 : 2
College for Christ aims to achieve exactly what its name suggests – to develop College boys into a relationship with Christ. Meetings are held on Tuesdays and Thursdays at tea break in the Chapel. Meetings are run by the CFC committee and guest speakers are often invited to speak. The meetings cater for interdenominational fellowships so as to encourage boys from various churches to attend.
The group is led by a committee of chosen boys who show leadership ability as well as, and most importantly, Godly characteristics.
Another avenue of CFC runs separately in the Boarding Establishment. This avenue forms an important role within the BE because the boarders are away from home and miss out on the activities of their churches that they would normally be able to attend. The general meetings are held on Tuesday and Thursday evenings after the prep sessions. These meeting are run by the boarder contingent of the general CFC committee. The boarder committee is assisted by a number of local churches.
On Wednesday evenings there is a Bible Study group that meets for boys who want to deepen their relationships with God – attendance at these studies can be arranged through the committee members. Boys have the option of attending youth groups on Friday nights at New Covenant Church. Every Sunday morning there is a Chapel Service for boys who stay in over the weekends.
CFC on the whole is a popular and active association among the boys, with keen attendances recorded at all the meetings right across the CFC spectrum.
