FOCUS stands for Fellowship of Overseas Christian University Students.
We are an interdenominational and Bible based Christian group at the University of Newcastle. We are people from all sorts of courses and backgrounds who love meeting together to study the Bible and learn more about Jesus.
There are lots of things we do in the FOCUS, but there is an easy way to get involved and that is through the Bible Study Groups. These are relaxed groups of students who learn from the Bible together.
We'd love for you to join us at any FOCUS activity!
FOCUS is all about:
explaining the Bible in simple English for non native speakers so they may trust Jesus as their King and Saviour
providing care and support for international students during their stay in Australia
building friendships between Australians and international students and share the gospel in an appropriate way
preparing international students to return to their home countries, taking the gospel with them where possible
If you are an overseas student or know someone who is coming to study from overseas, get involved with your uni's FOCUS group - it is a great way to learn more about Christianity in a friendly environment, and to form friendships with other Christian uni students from around the world.
Check out our website to find out more about what we believe, who we are and how you can get involved.
