Hall groups exist in each hall to help the Christians living there to give every student living in halls the opportunity to hear and respond to the gospel, through the way they live, and by organising events. If you are living in halls and would like to get involved or find out who your hall group leaders are, please get in touch – I’d love to chat to you!

Benjamin Davies – International Café Coordinator

Hello Friend! My name is Benjamin (from the Hebrew ‘Binyamin’ meaning ‘Son of the Right Hand’ (c.f. Genesis 35:18)). I study English Literature and I am the ‘International Coordinator’. That sounds very high-flying, doesn’t it? Apparently I am meant to bring the different elements of (a complex activity or organization) into a harmonious or efficient relationship. But I don’t coordinate International Students; I help to run ‘International Café ’ with a sub-committee. I-Café  aims to be a hospitable space for International Students to have free FOOD, free FRIENDS! and good GOSPEL conversations. Fundamentally, I-Café seeks to provide opportunities for International Students to hear and respond to the Good News of Jesus Christ (Who is the friend who sticks closer than a brother – Revelation 7:9) I-Café welcomes all people, whether “International” or “Local” or “British” (or even Welsh!) Want to chat about Jesus Christ, in Café or out and about? Do come and chat. I’ll pay for the tea! Follow ‘International Café’ on Facebook for event information.

Hi! My name’s Brooke and I’m a second year English and Theology student. I’m the Worship Coordinator for the CU this year, which means I head up the worship team. This looks like writing rotas and supporting and training worship leaders, musicians, and tech team. If you play any instruments, love to worship, want to get involved or just find out more, please email me at bhr2@st-andrews.ac.uk.
