Corner of Church St and Market St Wollongong 8am, 9:30am, 11am, 5pm & 7pm each Sunday
In March, Wollongong ECU (Evangelical Christian Union) is our Mission of the Month. ECU is the Christian group on campus at the University of Wollongong, part of AFES, the Australian Fellowship of Evangelical Students, which supports ministries on universities all over Australia.
The branch of AFES that focuses on international students is called FOCUS (the Fellowship of Overseas Christian University Students), also here at UOW. The AFES vision is ‘proclaiming Jesus at university so as to present everyone mature in him’.
AFES campus ministries are big gospel opportunities because
From St Michael’s, Richard Chin is the national Director of AFES. Rob Copland, Anglican Chaplain at UOW, is the Campus Director of ECU. Jeanette Waddell joins the team to take over as senior female pastoral worker. James Kerr oversees ministry training, while Jon Baird leads the local FOCUS work with overseas students. James Chen, and Varun & Divya Varghese are ministry apprentices.
All these people must raise their own support. Apart from your giving to ‘mission of the month’ at church in March, you could contact any of them if you wished to help sponsor one of them individually. More information at www.afes.org.au by searching for a particular surname or university.
Please pray that following Orientation Days last week, pray that AFES staff and students will connect with lots of students – both Christian and not – to reach, disciple and love.
