About Us

We exist to give every student on our campus the opportunity to hear and respond to the gospel of Jesus Christ.
Strathclyde University Christian Union is body of Christian students committed to sharing the good news of Jesus Christ across our campus.
Supported by UCCF and led by a committee of students  we reach out to our campus through events, and the personal relationships our members share with people across our university.
We come from range of different churches and unite around our shared faith in Jesus Christ, the fundamental truths of which are found in our Doctrinal Basis.

Doctrinal Basis 
 The basis of the Fellowship shall be the fundamental truths of Christianity, as revealed in Holy Scripture, including:

a) There is one God in three persons, the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit.

b) God is sovereign in creation, revelation, redemption and final judgement.

c) The Bible, as originally given, is the inspired and infallible Word of God. It is the supreme authority in all matters of belief and behaviour.

d) Since the fall, the whole of humankind is sinful and guilty, so that everyone is subject to God's wrath and condemnation.

e) The Lord Jesus Christ, God's incarnate Son, is fully God; he was born of a virgin; his humanity is real and sinless; he died on the cross, was raised bodily from death and is now reigning over heaven and earth.

f) Sinful human beings are redeemed from the guilt, penalty and power of sin only through the sacrificial death once and for all time of their representative and substitute, Jesus Christ, the only mediator between them and God.

g) Those who believe in Christ are pardoned all their sins and accepted in God's sight only because of the righteousness of Christ credited to them; this justification is God's act of undeserved mercy, received solely by trust in him and not by their own efforts.

h) The Holy Spirit alone makes the work of Christ effective to individual sinners, enabling them to turn to God from their sin and to trust in Jesus Christ.

i) The Holy Spirit lives in all those he has regenerated. He makes them increasingly Christlike in character and behaviour and gives them power for their witness in the world.

j) The one holy universal church is the Body of Christ, to which all true believers belong.

k) The Lord Jesus Christ will return in person, to judge everyone, to execute God's just condemnation on those who have not repented and to receive the redeemed to eternal glory.
The Christian Unions 
In 1919 Norman Grubb was a young student at Cambridge University. He wrote, "I had one overwhelming urge - to get around to all the rooms of the men in my College and witness to them." Over decades UCCF developed into the organisation it is today, with the same radical vision for mission, to see students living and speaking for Jesus on campus.

Over 40,000 students attend CU events every year with over 1 million copies of the gospels having been given out. We are part of this global mission.
