What is Nine20?

“Nine20” is the name of the CU small groups that run in each hall. If you’re living in halls this year then get involved in the group where you are!

Nine20 is all about Jesus: the name itself comes from Luke 9:20 in the Bible:

‘”But what about you?” [Jesus] asked. “Who do you say I am?”. Peter answered, “God’s Messiah.”’

In nine20 groups we study the bible together to grow in our understanding of who Jesus is and what it means to follow him, and we have fun as we get to know and support each other. But we don’t stop there; we individually get stuck in to university life and encourage each other as we look for opportunities to introduce others to Jesus, both on our own and as a group.

Nine20 groups are led by second-year students who are all passionate about Jesus and their halls. If you’re a Christian coming to university feeling excited or nervous about living for Jesus and sharing your faith at uni, then nine20 is for you. If you’re not a Christian, whatever you believe, if you’re interested in finding out more about Jesus and Christianity then nine20 will provide a way for you to do that.
