The total number of undergraduates that will be studying at the campuses on which I work next term according to official figures.

I've been reflecting on this number over the past few days. I find it daunting. It's bigger than the whole population of Lancaster, and nearly twice the population of Kendal. It's more people than you could jam into Anfield. And many of them are very lost.

Most of those people I will never meet. Many might not even meet a Christian. Total CU attendance across the campuses is about 300. And yet for many of the forty eight thousand, possibly the best chance that they will get to hear the gospel in a way that is meaningful is during their time at university.

Do please pray for the CUs up here, particularly as they put the finishing touches to Freshers' Week outreach. Pray that they will be salt and light amongst the thousands.
