Story Logo

Everyone has a story. What’s yours?

Stories are what make us human. Faith or no faith, everyone has one. Your cleaner in college has one. The guy sitting next to you in the library has one. And the joke book guy in Market Square – he has one as well. This week is an invitation to explore stories of life and Christianity. To hear stories of lives impacted by faith, to ask questions of the Christian story, and to share your own story too.

It doesn’t matter who you are or what you believe – your story matters.

From 15th – 19th February 2016, Durham Christian Union ran a week of events on the theme of Story, looking at key objections to the Christian story at lunchtimes and hearing about changed lives in the evenings, meeting five fascinating individuals – including an ex-terrorist, a former Hindu priest and a Major General – who shared their story of a life changed by Jesus. Then taking a look at stories in John’s Gospel of lives changed by the same man two thousand years ago. Check out for more details.

Videos of all the talks can be found on the talks system (lunchbars, evenings) or our YouTube Channel.

This Is Life

Jesus said: “I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full.” (John 10:10)

Unconvinced? Disagree? Curious to find out more?

From 6th – 13th February 2015, Durham Christian Union ran a series of talks and events entitled This Is Life, open for anyone to explore the claims of Jesus on some of the biggest issues out there – themes such as truth, hope, love, and life itself. Head on over to for more details.

Carol Service

We run an annual Carol Service in the cathedral which is attended by around 3000 students (people often end up sitting on the floor!). In 2013, Adrian Holloway (who was coming to speak at Cross Examined) gave a multi-part talk throughout the service. Head on over to the talks system to listen to the talk or watch the recording.


Uncover: See for yourself

Uncover was a week of events similar to Cross Examined we ran in February 2013. All the talks were recorded, and can be found online.
