Our Leeds Christian Union committee are voted in by the Christian Union each year to serve by co-ordinating the Christian Union activity.
They meet every week during term to pray, plan and prepare for the amazing opportunity that we have on our campus to share the Good News of Jesus Christ. Our committee love being part of the Christian Union and think it is a huge privilege to be part of this team and mission.
