Administrative / Biographical History

The Cambridge Student Christian Council (SCC) was the umbrella group for the different Christian societies in Cambridge University. It became Christians in Unity in Cambridge following a meeting of the representatives of the member societies in Easter 2004.

The Ecumenical Fellowship Groups were comprised of around ten students drawn from a range of Christian denominations. The groups held weekly meetings where there were talks, discussions and Bible readings. Some groups also carried out social work.
