Galvanise: The Programme

We know that Freshers week can be one of the most pressurized, intense, difficult, exciting and rewarding times of year. We are surrounded by people who are full of questions about life, responsibility and purpose. We are submerged in a culture which is rife with temptation and opportunity.

How do we make our way through this time of year, not only making a stand for what we believe to be right, but also grabbing hold of the opportunities, conversations and friendships that God has put before us.

We need to be protected, we need to be prepared and we need to be ready to act. We need to be galvanised.

Why Galvanise?

The dictionary defines Galvanise as:
1. To Shock or excite (someone) into taking action.
2. To Coat (iron or steel) with a protective layer of zinc.

We believe that to be prepared for University, we need to be excited, passionate and ready to act as well as being completely covered by the protection of the Holy Spirit.

What's happening?

This year we are putting on a comprehensive prayer, worship and mission program BEFORE freshers week for any new or returning students so that we can be prepared , protected and fired up for living life as a Jesus follower in Portsmouth University.

Our weekly calender currently contains a huge variety of events! Check out the content sections below for more information.

Daily Prayer Gatherings

Every evening throughout the week, we will be meeting in peoples homes through the city and praying for our students, our church, our university and any other pressing needs. These are the backbone of our week and are essential to developing a healthy prayer habit before your time at university.

Monday 7th - Spontaneous Worship

Before we do anything we want to give glory to God. We are kicking off this week with a session of free worship which everyone is welcome to. We are booking out a room at the church and filling it with instruments. From guitars to the triangle, there will be something for everyone to participate in. You don't have to be musically gifted to come to this session, you just need a passion for Jesus and a desire to worship. You can sing, soak or sleep- however you feel comfortable giving God Glory. We encourage you to bring anything that will help you worship. Pens and paper? Your Bible? Your keyboard? Cool.

Tuesday 8th - Creative Prayer Workshop

We are decking out a room at the church with a truckload of creative resources. Paints, crafts, prayer stations, music- everything we can think of to encourage your creative juices. We will be spending our time praying for the University, the students and the churches in a way which is a little bit different. If you can pray, this is for you!

Wednesday 9th - Prayer Walk Challenge

We want to cover the city in prayer in a way that is radical and exciting. We will be splitting everyone into prayer groups, giving them a list of prayer challenges and sending them out to claim the city for the kingdom! Challenges range from praying in a room in halls to praying for a member of staff at the union. We don't want to leave an inch of the university uncovered by prayer!

Thursday 10th - Treasure Hunting Workshop

We want to encourage everyone to be listening to the Holy Spirit throughout their time during freshers week. We will be gathering into groups, praying to hear from the Holy Spirit and then hitting the streets and actioning what we hear. Don't worry if this is something new to you! You'll be with a group of people who can encourage and prepare you for what you'll find.

Friday 11th- Missions Brainstorm

We know that some of the best ideas for mission come directly from you. We want to gather everyone into one place and bounce our ideas for mission during freshers week off of each other. This meeting is our springboard to equipping all students to mission during freshers week and making the churches presence known throughout the university. If you have an idea, or you want to be involved in making a difference to your campus, you need to come to this meeting.

Sunday 13th - Fresher's Sunday

We often have a HUGE influx of freshers on the first Sunday of term. Last year we had around 50 students looking to connect to church on this Sunday and we need your help to welcome them! Book out your afternoon to get to know some freshers. Want to treat someone to tenth hole cake? Fancy having a group round for lunch? Mass Volleyball match on the seafront? Who knows! Watch this space!
