We are Agapé UK Students!
Agapé UK has student teams on campuses across the country. Our staff are passionate about engaging students – the next generation of our country’s leaders and influencers – in exploring the bigger questions of life, faith, God, etc. We also offer people the chance to explore what Jesus has to say about these topics. As we ourselves discover more of Jesus each day, we are convinced that the transformation we experience through this is available to every student in the UK.

Ginika’s text finished tantalisingly: “I’ve got some great news for you!” and agonisingly, Miriam Potts (an Agapé UK staff member in Newcastle) had to wait until she got to meet up with Ginika later that week to finally hear her story.
