New for this year, CICCU is organising a getaway just for freshers from the 24th to 26th of September - the weekend before term starts. There will be a couple of older students from Downing there too who are super-keen to get to know the new freshers!
It will be at Dyke House, a big residential centre in rural Herefordshire, and there will be lots of fun, bible teaching, friendship and encouragement before term.
If you don't have Facebook, just email one of the reps (see the 'Contact Us' tab) and we'll send you all the info.
College group day
It will be a short getaway basically, but with us, Caius and Trinity Hall college groups only, on the 28th of September at Madingley Village Hall just outside Cambridge, from 9:15am to 6:45pm. Lunch of pizza will be included with the cost of hiring the hall, which will hopefully be around £10 per person. Please try and come, even if not for the whole thing (if say you can't get there that early).
Getaway is a relaxed short holiday where the CU can literally 'get away' from Cambridge for some fun and quality teaching before the new year starts. It's a fantastic opportunity for freshers to meet fellow Christians before they arrive in the business of Cambridge for the first time.
Last year we went to the Harby Centre in Leicestershire with the CUs of Clare and Trinity Hall. We had loads of fun, and it was a great opportunity to spend time with friends preparing for the term ahead and learning more about God.
