PCSU is one of the largest extra-curricular activities in college. Weekly meetings on Tuesdays at lunchtime in the Assembly Hall are very popular, with at times up to 200 students attending a programme of varied events, from worship sessions, to bible studies and socials.
Most meetings have a time of worship led by students and a talk from a guest speaker, testimonies from students or other activities such as teacher panels. One Tuesday each month is for ‘small group’ meetings, with the groups composed of a number of students from different Year Groups. Each group is led by two students from Years 13 and 14.
Special evening events range from socials, dinner dances and the annual final SU night before the study leave period.
The annual SU weekend, usually takes place in March, and continues to be a good opportunity for fellowship and fun.
SU is organised by a committee of 6 students and 3 teachers who meet biweekly to oversee the planning and specifics of each week’s programme. The Tuesday meetings are run by the students for the students.
SU Teachers hold these two overall aims:
- SU should be an opportunity for students to increase their knowledge of God and develop opportunities to explain their beliefs.
- SU is a training ground for future leaders as the students should be involved in all aspects of planning and delivery.
