The Spike or Victoria College Review 1938

Evangelical Union

Evangelical Union

The work of the Evangelical Union at Victoria College began in the usual way this year with a supper in the Cafeteria to welcome freshers. Short addresses were given at this by three members.

Throughout the year weekly Bible study circles have been held on "The Doctrine of the Christian Faith," led by the Rev. A. C. Clifford, M.Sc. Regular prayer meetings have been held each week, and two evening meetings in the second term were addressed by Mr. D. Grant of the C.I.M. and Mr. A. Loan. Three Sunday teas have been held during the year. At the first the speaker was Dr. R. V. Bingham, and at the second. Dr. J. M. Laird. These two were held in the women's common room. The third was held at the Karori Baptist Church, and was followed by a service conducted by three members of the Union. During the second term a social evening was held at the home of one of the members at Island Bay. The special guest and speaker was Mr. A. C. Roke of Abyssinia.

The outstanding feature of this year's activities has been the visit of the Rev. T. C. Hammond, M.A., of Moore Theological College, Sydney. About 50 students took advantage of the opportunity to hear him speak at 'Varsity on "Sin and Atonement," and he was present at a week-end house party at Plimmerton in June.

The third inter-University fellowship conference was held in Auckland at Easter. Delegates were present from the four University Colleges, Massey and the Training College.

An important feature of co-ordinated work was the appointment, at the beginning of the year, of Mr. Graham Miller as travelling secretary.
