What is UCCF and who are the staff worker and relay worker?
UCCF is a fellowship of staff, students and supporters who are passionate about making disciples of Jesus Christ in the student world. Over the past 100 years, Christian Unions made up of Christians from all backgrounds have gathered on University campus’ across the UK and throughout the world, united with the vision of giving every student the chance to hear and respond to the gospel of Jesus Christ. UCCF (Universities and Colleges Christian Fellowship) is this network of Christian unions and is the UK part of IFES (International Fellowship of Evangelical Students). The Fellowship desires to see student led, vibrant missional communities at the heart of Universities, and UCCF Staff are there to support, resource, and go with students as they hold out Jesus to their friends.

Originally from somewhere North of Aberdeen, Emily studied English Literature at Glasgow University. After graduating she moved back to the East Coast and was surprised to re-discover the sun. After spending one year on UCCF’s Relay Programme and another two serving as a Ministry Apprentice, Emily is delighted to be working with St Andrews CU to help them share the gospel on their campus. Emily loves reading, peppermint tea and all-things-brunch. She is also attempting to learn to play the guitar…it’s not going so well.
