Faculty Groups

Helping each other to glorify God through our subjects

Every student at Cambridge spends much of their time doing the degrees we signed up for, and each subject presents unique challenges towards living distinctively for Jesus and making him known in our departments. Faculty groups provide a great opportunity to meet with others who share the same challenges. They have no set structure and vary to be as helpful and relevant as possible to each subject. The main activity of most groups is meeting up a few times a term to encourage and pray for each other, but faculty groups also provide a great starting point for organising subject specific events.

If you’re interested in learning more, please get in contact with the faculty officers: Eleanor Heaps and Hannah Patterson.


How can we glorify God in our degrees? How do we study from a Christian perspective? How might talking about our degree help us introduce the goodness and relevance of the gospel?

Is there a place we can go to find good Christian books about our subjects, and study them with friends? Can we bring non-Christians with us to find books about the gospel? Can we find reliable advice on these questions?

The Cambridge Christian Study Centre has just been opened to meet all these needs! You can become a member and book a desk today.

Led by UCCF staff Tim Laurence and Anja Lijcklama a Nijeholt – with ongoing hosting from Matt Lillicrap and Andrew Fellows, in partnership with Forming A Christian Mind, the Christian Graduate Society, and others, the Study Centre is now open in the North Aisle of the Round Church, and CICCU students are welcome to come.

The Study Centre has been developed since last October in conjunction with CICCU Faculty Outreach officers Eleanor and Hannah, among others.
