Reaching every uni student on North Terrace with the good news of Jesus Christ to present everyone mature in Him.
That's our vision! And it's what makes us a little different than most uni clubs. We don't simply exist for our members, but also for those who don't know or haven't yet heard and embraced the great news about Jesus.
If you are a Christian...
Joining ES will help you:
- Know Jesus more deeply
- Live the Christian life well at uni, and
- Tell others the good news about Jesus
We are non-denominational. People from many different denominations and backgrounds join us.
If you are not a Christian...
we also welcome you to join us at one of our many events and activities.
We promise not to push our beliefs onto you. We want you to have the opportunity to hear, question and come to your own conclusions about Jesus.
Coming to a Bible Talk would be a good place to start, or you could drop us a line if you have questions or would like to meet with someone one-to-one or in a small group to find out more about Christianity.
What we do
We run many different weekly activities and events across the year, but here's the best way to get involved with ES: Every week of term time, plan to come to a Bible Talk and join a Bible Study Group (BSG). And every year come to our highlight events: Mid Year Conference (MYC) and get involved in Jesus Week
That's two things each week, and two things every year.
1. The Bible Talks - Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday 1-2pm
The Bible Talks run every week during term time for 1 hour. We hold talks at Adelaide Uni and City East (the talk is repeated, so just head to the one that suits your timetable best).
You'll hear a bit about what's happening around ES as well as a talk on a topic or Bible passage. There is the opportunity to ask questions after the talk, and we usually head out for coffee after if you don't have classes to get to in the next hour.
The Bible Talks are open to the public and they're a great place to stick your head in if you're checking us out. ESers find that The Bible Talks are a good place to bring friends who have an interest in hearing more about the Bible and Christianity.
2. Bible study groups
meet weekly and start in week 2 of each semester.
These are groups of around 10 led by other students. You'll get to know a few people really well and study the Bible in a way that connects with uni life.
Groups run for 1 hour at different times during the week so they'll work with your timetable. The meet at Adelaide Uni, UniSA City East and City West
1. Mid Year Conference
Runs for 5 days in the last week of the mid-year break.
MYC features engaging, in-depth teaching on a theological topic or a book of the Bible.
You'll have great fun, learn more than you thought was possible, and have the opportunity to form new and better relationships with other uni students!
2. Jesus Week
In term three each year, we run Jesus Week - our most focussed week of connecting with the North Terrace campuses.
Each day during Jesus Week we run talks, debates and other opportunities for students to hear about and respond to Jesus.
Jesus Week has a different theme each year which we advertise by wearing hoodies, postering and giving away food.
Plan to get involved with Jesus Week activities as much as you can!
