The Connect Week
There is plenty to dip into over the course of the week at Connect. You are welcome to come along to as much or as little as you like!
Due to current COVID-19 restrictions, we are operating a little differently from normal, but still meeting together for weekly Bible study, opportunities to socialise and have fun within the guidelines, and we look forward to re-starting our weekly evening home groups soon.
Under normal conditions, we look forward to Wednesday mornings together at college for Bible study, prayer, tea, coffee, and cakes, whilst children are cared for in a creche staffed by a rota of student tutor groups, and on Friday mornings joining the college community for communion, with tea/coffee afterwards, and then a toddler playgroup.
We encourage all Connect members to find themselves a couple of people with whom they can form a prayer triplet/quad. We believe that they can be a valuable place for sharing your life more deeply with a couple other members of the Connect community. They provide a safe space to share and pray with each other on a regular basis. We hope that triplets begin to form in the first couple of months of college, although the exec is more than happy to support you in finding a group.

From the first moment we stepped inside Trinity College on the open […]
Our response to the change in national lockdown measures announced recently. Government guidelines show, very little has changed and we are mostly continuing to follow the same measures at college as before (essential access for private studies and library collection only). Sadly the practical courses measure does not apply to us; I appreciate there has been some confusion around this […]
This academic year, we are expanding the opportunities for both pioneers and those who wish to learn more about pioneer ministry. Currently, up to thirty-five students have participated in ‘input classes’, which are half-termly meetings, timed to coordinate with our dispersed learners’ block weeks. As they meet through Zoom, the group hears a seminar from […]
