October Events in Auckland

Faith at University

What are the common issues that Christians face in their study at university? This symposium will seek to address that question and help to introduce young people to the challenges and skills necessary for their faith to survive the tertiary environment.  Guest speakers include Paul Windsor, Dr David Richmond, Doug and Puti Wilson, Yael Klangwisan (Laidlaw College), and issues discussed will be university life, how Christians can impact the university, how a career as a scientist can relate to faith, and apologetics in the academy. This has been set up particularly for young adults and Year 13s, and will feature Scripture Union, TSCF, Student life, and Thinking Matters.
