Event description

Description

What if every Christian student was passionately pursuing God's call to social justice? What would it look like for an entire generation to live out Jesus' radical call to love our neighbour, giving generously, praying powerfully and serving selflessly?

Just Love exists to inspire and release every Christian student to pursue the Biblical call to social justice. We started in 2013 as a small group of Oxford students who wanted to serve rough sleepers in their community, but have now grown to 23 different student groups across the UK. Over the past 6 years, our students have raised £70,000 for other charities and given over 21,000 volunteering hours in local communities - everything from gardening and youthwork to shelters and soup-runs. Working alongside our partners Tearfund and International Justice Mission, our dream is to see society transformed by investing in the leaders of tomorrow, equipping and envisioning them for a whole-life pursuit of Jesus and justice.

Here in Cambridge, Just Love was involved in setting up the Cambridge Refugee Scholarship Campaign, which last year persuaded the University of Cambridge to fully fund 10 studentships for refugees and asylum seekers. We are involved in environmental campaigning, community youthwork and homelessness ministry around the city, along with a wide range of other projects and events. We're proud to be a space where people can connect their faith with their lifestyle, their convictions with their future careers, their Bible with their newsfeed, and are passionate about connecting Christian students with fantastic teaching and thinking on the most pressing justice issues of our day.

We'd love to share more of our story and our vision with you, invite you to be part of this movement and explain how it is possible to support Just Love's work through prayer, financial giving and in a range of other ways. This drinks and canapes reception will be hosted by members of the Just Love UK Staff Team, centring on live music and testmonies from Just Love students and with a short talk from guest speaker Elaine Storkey, former President of Tearfund and Director of the London Institute for Contemporary Christianity (LICC). The evening will run from 7pm-9pm on Monday 4th November and will be held at the Michaelhouse Cafe in Cambridge.

We'd love to see you there!
