Today is the big day! You probably got up earlier than you have in a long time and prepared yourself for the news. Today is results day!
For those of you who got what you needed to get the university place you wanted, congratulations. For those who will be faced with decisions about what to do next, take heart, today is the beginning of a new adventure. Your world doesn’t end here, God can bring you to places you didn’t dream possible. I hope you find a course, campus and city in which you will thrive.
If you are coming to Bath, to the college, to either of the Universities or to Norland then extra congratulations are in order. You have chosen well. Bath is a wonderful place to move to. This city is full of life, creativity and is ridiculously beautiful. You are going to love it here.
In the next few weeks you will begin to google what there is to do in Bath and I could recommend a few things to you; coffee shops are my area of expertise and Bath has some great ones to choose from. You will get loads of advice about pubs, shops, museums and parks. Be prepared to get excited.
But if I could give you one piece of advice it is this. Plan now to attend a church when you’re at Uni. Did you know that the overwhelming majority of Christian students never connect with a church when they are at university? I would imagine that a lot of these students intended to get stuck in at church but never quite made it through the door. So make it one of your priorities before you go. Get online and check a few churches out. You can even get in contact with them ahead of time using Fusion’s great little Student Linkup App.
At Hay Hill we believe that a student connected with local church is a powerful combination. We believe that students can make a huge difference to the lives of those they live with in halls but also to their whole campus and to the city of Bath. We love seeing students become part of the life of our church and to see them thriving in their faith and mission as they follow Jesus. We are here for you and ready to have your back as you go on mission with Jesus on your campus. We want to be your family away from home and to help you become the world changers you were made to be.
We will be having some lunches after church on the first three Sundays in October. Some of our church will be there and are ready to welcome you. We are a really friendly bunch and you’ll feel at home with us pretty quickly. We’re looking forward to seeing you.
You can get in touch with us via Fusion’s website.
We would love to welcome you to Bath when you get here but if you don’t connect with us then please do connect with one of the amazing local churches in the city.
Trust me. It is one of the best decisions you will make at university.
