Annual General Meeting

Dear friends!

We are pleased to announce this year’s Annual General Meeting of the CU Christian Orthodox Society. This is a great opportunity for everyone to join us in planning the events for the coming year, and in electing a new committee. If you are new to the society, this will be an excellent opportunity to get to know the other members!

The meeting will take place at 6:00 PM the coming Saturday (25th) at Junior Parlour in Trinity College. The room is opposite of Trinity College Great Gate. We will try to put up signs to avoid confustion. If in doubt, ask the porters!

Yours,

The OrthSoc Committee

This Term’s First Bible Study

Dear Friends,

We are pleased to announce the first Bible study of this term! It will take place this Friday in M7 Burrell’s Field, Trinity College, and will last from 6.30 to 7.30 PM. The Bible study will not be on any specific passage, but we will be talking about the Bible in general (its history, textual criticism, formation of the New Testament Canon etc.) and then pick a specific book and chapter to focus on in future sessions. Being aware of the fact that it is non-trivial to find the place, one of us will be waiting for people outside of Burrell’s Field Porters’ Lodge from 6.20 until 6.30.

Yours,
OrthSoc Committee
