Events

In Weeks 2 & 3 of Semester 2, based out of the Main Campus of the University of Wollongong, Uni Bible Group will be delivering Four Talks and hosting numerous Events & Stalls. Our genuine desire is for all to come to an understanding of who Jesus is from the Bible and then come to a conclusion of the claims he makes on our lives. Please come & talk with us about Jesus and why we think he is the reason for everything.

Talks

We Live

Of all questions like what, where & when, the ‘why’ question goes beyond the others. It goes to the purpose of things. Have you given much thought to why you live? What is your purpose? Is it something you’ve created for yourself? Is it something that goes beyond just yourself? There are lots of ways to answer ‘why’. But to say “Jesus is why we live” goes beyond all other purposes to make Jesus the purpose of life. It’s a big statement. But if as John writes in his first-century biography “all things were made through him”, Jesus is someone who needs exploring if we are to understand the purpose of life.

Join us as we explore purpose and meaning in this public talk: Jesus is why we live.

Date: Week 2 Tuesday July 31st

Time: 12:30pm - 1:30pm

Location: Building 35.G20

We Love

Love not hate. Make love not war. Love is all we need. It’s what the world needs now. It seems from these quotes that if there’s one thing we should all agree on, it’s love. And yet arguably we’re as divided as ever. We’re as materialistic as ever conflating love for objects with love for people. And so we’ve never been more lonely as a society. So where is the love? Amidst the love songs and slogans and sound bites, we’re confused about this thing called love. But one voice cuts through. Of the many radical things Jesus said & did, we shall explore one: washing his followers’ feet. It’s seemingly odd. But from here we’ll see a love beyond any slogan, sound bite or soppy romance.

Join us as we explore life-changing love in this public talk: Jesus is why we love.

Date: Week 2 Wednesday August 1st

Time: 12:30pm - 1:30pm

We Laugh

Everyone needs to spread their wings just for LOLs coz YOLO and gotta live your truth, especially at uni! But does pursuing pleasure really satisfy? Our LOLs belie a deep-seated pain. National wellbeing is down in Australia. Arguably living your truth and relative truth amidst an age of post-truth fuels our anxieties. For if life only has the meaning we assign to it, what happens when you no longer see meaning? It’s into this lost age that Jesus entered. He even fuelled LOLs by turning water into wine! But this seemingly bizarre sign points us to joy unending.

Join us as we explore deep-seated joy in this public talk: Jesus is why we laugh.

Date: Week 2 Thursday August 2nd

Time: 12:30pm - 1:30pm

We Look Forward

What do you look forward to? The student says “graduation”. The graduate says “a job”. The worker says “holidays”. The victim says “justice”. The materialist says “more”. The chronically ill says “no more”. Is it mind over matter whereby the optimists win? And yet death brings an abrupt end. Jesus told his followers what he looked forward to saying “in my Father’s house are many rooms…I go to prepare a place for you”. It’s where peace and justice reign and death is no more. But there’s only one way in.

Join us as we explore it in this public talk: Jesus is why we look forward.
