NCCF enjoys Weekend Away
The New College Christian Fellowship (NCCF) just had their first of two weekends away for the year. On March 1st, nearly 50 Collegians bundled into cars and travelled to beautiful Lake Macquarie, where they spent time hanging out, having fun and engaging in great conversation with Bibles open. Alumnus Tim Rowe (NC 2005-07) delivered 3 talks on Matthew 16, which served as springboards for Collegians to ask each other questions in discussion groups after each session. A seminar led by trainees from Unichurch (Church on campus) also provided an opportunity for everyone to think about the Christian approach to work and work life.
It was all-smiles (albeit on exhausted faces) from returning Collegians on Sunday afternoon, with positive reports from everyone who went. Read just three of the experiences shared below:
I was thankful for the opportunity to discuss questions I had of Christianity within small groups with people from diverse backgrounds, providing engaging and thought provoking discussion - Belinda, 2nd year
Weekend away was an amazing opportunity to get to know the other Christians… I really enjoyed the discussion groups; it was a great space for people to ask questions about the various things they found challenging to understand… It was a great way to escape the busyness of school work and Sydney, and be reminded to put Christ first - Moyo, fresher/1st year (exchange; Canada)
Weekend away was a fantastic opportunity to push the pause button on uni and spend some time under God’s word in fellowship with other collegians. I particularly enjoyed getting to know the freshers better, learning about their relationship with Jesus and being challenged by God’s word with them - Tim, 3rd year, NCCF Treasurer
