There are a wide variety of activities on offer at the Centre by both staff and residents.
Be part of a community
The Centre is more than a hall of residence; it is a community with a Lutheran Christian ethos. Our residents choose to live here because they want to be part of this community and enjoy making a positive contribution to it. This may be demanding, but it is also hugely rewarding! Residents typically contribute in one of the following areas, in a way that fits with their busy lives as postgraduate students:
- hospitality (e.g. organising or helping with events, catering, washing up)
- chapel (supporting the spiritual life of the Centre, e.g. through music, helping set up, leading a simple time of prayer)
- outings (e.g. leading a hiking trip, theatre visit, or sports activity).
To maintain and deepen the Centre’s community, all residents also commit to attending an annual weekend away in October (this year from 6-7 October 2018), and meetings or events with floor mates or the whole group of residents (up to once a month).
