Bible Talks

The Bible Talks are our main public meeting as NCS. Did you know that the most common phrase used to refer to Christians in the Bible is that of ‘brothers and sisters’? But this relationship has implications for the way we live Christian lives. Each week we’ll explore a different mark of Christian brotherhood, and its significance for our lives today.This semester, both Bible Talks will be face-to-face on Wednesday, 12–1 pm and Thursday, 3–4pm.

Week 9 Locations: Callaghan LSTH100 Wed 12-1pm & VG10 Thu 3-4pm

Training Courses

Each semester, NCS runs Bible-based and practical training courses to equip you in your Christian life on campus and beyond it.  In Semester 1, we have five short courses to pick from.

Prayer Brekky

Prayer Brekky is exactly as it sounds. Breakfast and a chance to pray for various people and ministries from around the world. Prayer Brekky will be held in odd weeks of semester on Wednesday mornings at 8:30am on campus.

Keep an eye out on NCS Hangouts on Facebook for more details.
