Relationships… they are complicated whether you are in one or single, and everywhere you look people seem to be in couples, holding hands, cuddling and flirting.
University is supposed to be the best times of your life; the independence, the chance to make choices for yourself…and the chance to meet 1000s of new people. In fact statistics show that it is at ‘education institutions’ where most people meet their partners – so that means if your single when you arrive at University there is a good chance that you won’t be when you leave! However… that is not true of everyone.
When asked, most single people would probably say that they would like to be in a relationship and yet for some it can depress them that they may take ages to ‘find the right person’ or never settle down, while others are very content to be single! On the other hand a number of people in relationships can spend a lot of time trying to work out if their relationship ‘can go the distance’ or if there is ‘someone else better out there’… while some even stay in unfulfilling and hurtful relationships and never seem to end them.
At Submerge we are hosting a night to look into what it is to be single or in a relationship at University and life in general. We have the great privilege of having Ben Waite and Maddie Jeffery talking about single life in University and after it, and how to get the most out of it. We also have Justin & Lou Sloan who will be talking to us about relationships and how to do them well, having started dating at Brunel and are now married with 3 wonderful kids.
Come along and join us for a time of fellowship and to learn from these 4 great people as they look at what the Bible says about these topics and share their stories. We will also be reviving ‘text-a-question’ to give people the opportunity to ask any question anomalously to the speakers.
Looking forward to seeing you there
