You’re the only Christian: what next?

Imagine you arrived at university to discover that you are the only Christian on campus: what would you do?

This is the reality for student Emily who studies at the Northern School of Art in Hartlepool, an institution of around 500 students.

When Emily arrived in Hartlepool in September 2022, she searched for fellow Christians at her college. Finding just one other, Lydia, a student who had recently been baptised, Emily’s determination grew. She asked the Lord to use them both, despite the difficulties they might face. They met with UCCF Staff Worker Naomi Brehm, who primarily works with nearby Durham CU. Together, the two students and Naomi faithfully met to pray and read the Bible together on campus, but Emily hoped for more outreach opportunities.
