In order to promote community and the Christian faith among Cambridge graduate students, we hold several weekly, fortnightly, and one-off events.
We run three weekly Bible study groups that meet on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday evenings (usually starting at 7.30pm). These are graduate groups intended to be appropriate both for Christians and for those investigating the Christian faith. The Tuesday group meets north of the city centre in the home of ones of our members, and the Wednesday and Thursday groups meet in Trinity College. Please do invite your friends! Email soc.cgs [at] gmail.com for more information and to be put in contact with someone from whichever group would suit you best.
Our core meeting 'CGS Connect' meets as a fellowship of graduate students to encourage and pray for one another, grow in love for God, and learn how to share our faith in our colleges and departments.
The Chemistry group gathers every Wednesday at 12.30 in room U203 (Unilever Building, Department of Chemistry). We meet for a time of Bible study and prayer over lunch.

The Biochemistry group meets every Wednesday in the Hopkins building (Department of Biochemistry) at 12.30 to 1.30 pm for fellowship and Bible study.

If you are about to leave Cambridge and the CGS, firstly, we'll miss you! Secondly, this document contains details of some resources that may be helpful, particularly to those who are continuing in an academic environment and looking for scholarly Christian community (in addition to joining a local church). You may also wish to join the CGS alumni Facebook group to keep in touch with us and each other.
