Summer teams
7 July–27 July

‘And he said to them, “Go into all the world and proclaim the gospel to the whole creation.”’

Mark 16:15

Although on summer break, CU members across the country will still be engaging in mission throughout June and July.

Let's pray as they serve on summer camps, partner with their churches in mission, and join UCCF summer teams (groups of CU students will go and support various local CU movements in Europe).


Pray for the 13 students from the Central region who are partnering with a CU movement in eastern Europe today. They are halfway through their two-week trip. Pray that the CU members will have the chance to share the gospel with local students as they build relationships with them.

CU students from across the South West are travelling to a Muslim-majority country today. Give thanks for the growing partnership between the South West CUs and the local CU movement there. Pray that they will be an encouragement to each other, and witness to the unity and love of Christ.

Many members from CUs across the South East travelled to Ukraine on 30 June to support the CU movement, CCX. Do pray for them as they run an English-language camp and study the Bible with Christian Ukrainian students and their unbelieving friends. 

WED 10
Pray for the CU members currently helping with Friends International’s fortnight of outreach to international students living in Edinburgh.

Today is the final day of Manchester International Outreach, a fortnight of events hosted by Friends International to reach international students in Manchester with the gospel. Praise God for the North West and North East CU members who helped run activities and shared the gospel with students. Let’s pray that those still seeking will give their lives to Christ.

SAT 13
The UCCF summer team in eastern Europe return to England today. Let’s pray that the CU members who went will take a love of evangelism back to their universities, and that the local students they met will be encouraged and strengthened in their faith as they continue sharing the gospel.

SUN 14
As the UCCF summer team leave Ukraine today, let’s pray for CCX’s ongoing witness in the country. Pray that the Ukrainian Christian students will have been encouraged by their partnership with English CU members and inspired to continue sharing the gospel with their friends.

MON 15
Many CU students are serving on Christian summer camps throughout the summer. Pray that they will faithfully pour themselves out for others as Christ did for us and will see lots of young people take steps closer to the Lord as a result. Pray for energy and health as they do this.

TUE 16
Pray for the many international students who are preparing to come to Great Britain to attend university in September. Let’s ask the Lord to connect them with the CUs and local churches as they arrive, and that many will have open hearts to the gospel message.

WED 17
Please join us in praying for CU Staff Workers (CUSWs) and Relay Workers who are leading UCCF summer teams. For some, this is their first time on an overseas mission. Let’s pray that they will remain energised and lead with godliness and humility.
