This week is Christ Church One World Week- a week long celebration of the culture, talent and diversity at CCCU. There’s plenty to get involved with- from the launch event and the famous International Food & Culture Fayre to Film Screenings and Internationalisation Showcase! Find out what’s happening this week…

Make sure you check out the 2nd floor space in Augustine House, as it’s going global. Enjoy a selection of films, music, books and thought-provoking displays, all with an international theme. If you just want to chill we also have a comfy corner where you can sit and chat or just sit. We want this to be a genuinely free zone where everyone can feel free to start a conversation with anyone (if they want to!)

Welcome to the world in Christ Church!
