JOIN ANU FOCUS 2017

Public Meeting

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.

Training

Throughout the year FOCUS will run training sessions to help equip and encourage members. Click here to find out more.

Bible Studies

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.

Thursdays from 5.30-7pm during ANU teaching weeks  at an Australian home close to the ANU, just off Barry Drive. More informationFP2013-43

Simeon Network

For those who are postgrad students or staff, we still have options to get hooked into a christian community on campus. The Simeon Network connects Christians in the postgraduate and academic community, to support one another and share the good news about Jesus at university.  We are AFES affiliated, and part of a national Simeon Network community.
