In order to promote community and the Christian faith among Cambridge graduate students, we hold several weekly, fortnightly, and one-off events.
We run three weekly Bible study groups that meet on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday evenings (usually starting at 7.30pm). These are graduate groups intended to be appropriate both for Christians and for those investigating the Christian faith. The Tuesday group meets north of the city centre in the home of one of our members, and the Wednesday and Thursday groups meet in Trinity College. Please do invite your friends! Email soc.cgs [at] gmail.com for more information and to be put in contact with someone from whichever group would suit you best.
Our core meeting 'Refresh' (formerly Connect) meets as a fellowship of graduate students to encourage and pray for one another, grow in love for God, and learn how to share our faith in our colleges and departments.
Come and See is for those exploring Christianity. It's for people who wouldn't identify as a Christian and are not sure what they believe. We intend to start this after Christmas 2017 or early 2018. We will read a section of the Bible together each week, and ask questions to understand what it means. No background knowledge is necessary. This may be for you, or one of your friends - please feel free to invite people along! Please contact Clara (cal65) if you would like more information.
CGS also runs events for International Students, including the International Student Welcome at the beginning of the year. This leads onto events like International Food Evenings, Christmas parties, Garden parties and more! This are great things to invite your friends to and offer our community with the hope we have. Please contact Katie (krb45), Clara (cal65) or any of the Committee members (below) for more details.
The Christian Graduate Society (CGS) aims to grow the Christian graduate community of Cambridge in faith and fellowship, and to reach out to fellow students with the good news about Jesus. We welcome Christian grads of all denominations as well as students looking to find out more about Christianity.

If you are about to leave Cambridge and the CGS, firstly, we'll miss you! Secondly, this document contains details of some resources that may be helpful, particularly to those who are continuing in an academic environment and looking for scholarly Christian community (in addition to joining a local church). You may also wish to join the CGS alumni Facebook group to keep in touch with us and each other.
