SU Scotland’s Equip! events aim to help Christian young people in S4 to S6 think through why the Christian faith is true in the face of the big questions of today; and then live it out in one of the hardest places to be a Christian: school!
“How can God be good when there’s so much suffering in the world?”
“You don’t believe the Bible do you?!”
“Isn’t Christianity out of date and bigoted?”
Do you ever find it hard to live as a Christian in school? Do you have doubts and questions that make you unsure about your faith? Do you want to be equipped to speak about Jesus confidently with your friends? Well Equip! is for you!
Equip! events take place once a month during term time in Edinburgh and Glasgow. They are for anyone in S4 to S6 who wants to grow in their faith and live for Jesus in school. Each event includes worship, Bible study, teaching (from someone who really knows what they’re talking about!), Q&A and food!
When and where is it?
The Edinburgh event runs from 5pm to 7pm in Carrubbers Christian Centre in Edinburgh city centre and includes a light meal, and the Glasgow event is from 7pm to 9pm in the Tron Church in Glasgow city centre, and includes snacks.
Carrubbers Christian Centre, 65 High St, Edinburgh EH1 1SR
The Tron Church, 25 Bath St, Glasgow G2 1HW
How do I get there?
There are good public transport links into both city centres. But you could try persuading your church youth leader to fill a car and bring a bunch of you. They could even lead your discussion group. Park for the Glasgow event at Q-Park on Bath Street (G2 3ER), or for Edinburgh in the NCP multi-story off Holyrood Road (EH8 9UL).
Does it cost anything?
Just £3. But if you’re going to the Edinburgh event, do let us know (so we’ve got enough food!). Please email firstname.lastname@example.org to pre-book your place.
We often have bookstalls at the events, so come with some cash to buy books that will help you go deeper.
