FOCUS holds regular meetings, small group Bible studies, mission weeks and other events at the Australian National University (ANU). At the ANU, FOCUS aims to reach out to students and staff on campus with the wonderful news of Jesus’ love through these different activities.
Our Public Meetings are on every Thursdays at 1pm in the Haydon Allen Tank, where we meet for an hour as a big group to pray, and to read and hear a talk from the Bible. There are opportunities to ask questions, to discuss, and to catch up with one another during and after the talk. Everyone is welcome!
If you want to catch up on missed talks from 2016, click here!
2017 talks will start being uploaded soon.
Throughout the year FOCUS will run training sessions to help equip and encourage members. Click here to find out more.
Small group Bible studies are a great way to learn from God’s word and to make new friends. Several Bible studies are held on campus at ANU and are divided into faculty groups. Try to join your Faculty, as there’ll be events specific to your degree, but if you’re struggling to find a time, you’re absolutely free to join any group you can make it too.
For more details please contact the faculty leaders.

As a part of our weekly activities, ANU FOCUS runs the Bridge ANU, which is aimed particularly at accommodating international students who are interested in learning about Jesus. We hold regular free dinners and organise outings. No prior knowledge about Jesus and the Bible needed. Thursdays from 5.30-7pm during ANU teaching weeks at an Australian home close to the ANU, just off Barry Drive. More information
