Toby Browne
Hey! I’m Toby, the president of the CU. I study Theology and attend Grace Church. I probably read as much Tolkien as I do theology, and definitely drink more coffee than I do water. One line of wisdom which I have learnt to live by is: "a wise man goes when he can, a fool goes when he needs to". If you can put this profound life motto aside, I would love to hang out!
Hannah Brown
I’m Hannah, a final year English student and I go to Trinity Church Nottingham. You’ll usually find me with a good book and a cup of tea, or spot me on campus in my bright yellow coat! People tell me I’m prematurely old, because my favourite things include period dramas, the theatre, knitting and being by the sea. I’m so excited to be part of CU this year, and to be surprised by God all over again.
Josh McHaffie
Hi, I'm Josh, the treasurer of the CU. I'm in my third and final year studying Maths. I go to St Nic's church which I love! I'm also really into board games, reading and playing sport. I'm really excited for the year ahead, particularly to see students come to know Christ and grow in faith and love.
Michael Walker
Hi, my name’s Mike and I’m a third-year Biblical Studies and Theology student. I’m the CU’s Secretary, which basically means I do lots of admin and send lots of emails (more fun than it sounds, seriously). I harken from the sunny seaside town of Plymouth, which makes me about as southern as you can get. In the few, free moments I get between doing the above, I love drinking coffee, chilling with friends, writing and drawing.
Israel Bucko
Small Groups Coordinator
Hey! I’m Israel, one of the Small Groups Coordinators, in my third year of studying Biblical Studies and Theology! I grew up in Notts till I was around 5, then spent the rest of my childhood in the wonderland that is known as Skegness (I give good tours). I love music of many varieties, I play guitar, I enjoy going out taking photos, massive fifa seshes, going to church, worshiping through music, encouraging others and going out for coffee with mates. I’ve super loved coming back to Nottingham to study, and being involved with the Christian Union has been a massive blessing! My role is to help coordinate, with Rebecca, all the Hall Group Leaders who are running in all the halls this year.
Rebbeca Mangles
Small Groups Coordinator
Hi I’m Becca, and I am one of the Small Groups Coordinator. I’m a 3rd year Geographer from Istanbul and Sheffield among other places. This year I’ll be spending a lot of time coordinating the Hall Groups that run in each hall with the help of Israel and a lot of helpful others, but mainly Jesus! But between that and final year I might find time for a cup of tea and some colouring in (painting is great too).
Meg Buckingham
Evangelism Secretary
Hey, I’m Meg, NUCU’s Evangelism Coordinator. I am heading into my final year of my colouring degree (a.k.a. Geography) and I’m part of Grace Church. I’m not sure why I decided on the university furthest away from any coastline, because I’d always choose to be at the beach! I dabble in all things creative, caffeinated and cake-orientated.
Callum Pews
Prayer Secretary
Yo, my name is Callum (or Cal if you want). I am the prayer secretary of the CU which means its my job to pray and encourage the whole CU to pray. I am in my third year studying music and love a good blow on my bassoon. I am part of Grace Church and love strange music, books, colourful socks, coffee and the mighty Southampton FC.
Fiona Kenyon
International Secretary
Hi, I'm Fiona and I'm the International Secretary this year. I'm in my final year studying Philosophy and am part of the Ryland's Community Church in Beeston. I'm from Guildford but love getting to know people from all over the world. In the little spare time I have, I like swimming, period dramas and drinking lots of tea!
