A short summary
Our project is called ‘Events Week’ and this year will be titled ‘Wonder’. It will take place from the 3rd to the 7th of February 2020.
During this week we will have 2 events running per day. The first event is ‘Food for Thought’, which will happen twice every lunch time. Everyone is welcome to attend Food for Thought, during which there will be a meal provided free of charge as well as a short talk given on a theological theme such as "Does Science Disprove God?" After the talk it leaves time for the attendees to discuss and debate. In the evenings we will have informal events which may include an acoustic night or a board-games night, with a themed talk at some point throughout the evening as well as having catered food.
Who we are?
Leicester University Christian Union (LUCU) is part of the worldwide movement of Christian Unions (known as UCCF in Britain and IFES globally). We are Christians from all backgrounds and denominations united in the Gospel. We meet weekly on campus to live, speak and spread the message of Jesus across our University. Our aim is to grow in fellowship with one another, to build one another up in truth and love, and then lovingly serve the university, sharing the Gospel with all students. We run several big outreach events each year in co-operation with local churches and invite a host of excellent guest speakers to talk at our regular meetings (CU Central).
Where will the money go?
Wonder Week will end up being a large financial commitment for LUCU and so having the support of donors would allow us to run the week to the highest standard. LUCU rely on donations, therefore having this extra funding via LeicsGO would be a huge boost to our budget.
If we reach our target and there is money left over after Wonder Week, we will use the funds for our another annual events such as Bonfire Night and our Carol Service.
Our current projections are that Wonder Week will cost over £1000. The venue hire for this week alone is already estimated at £475. As well as this, each event will be catered with 20+ people expected to attend per event.
We will be able to contact you about the progress on the week as we prepare as well as once the week has ended. We would be happy to inform you of how successful the week has been.
