Why Bespeaking?

Welcome to ‘bespeaking.org’, gratefully dedicated to all those preparing to speak at Christian Union ‘Lunchbars‘. 

Lunchbars are a phenomenally exciting way of bringing the Gospel to campus. Students book an accessible venue at the heart of the university and invite their friends to a talk and a free lunch. The talk titles range from ‘how could a loving God allow suffering’ to ‘Jesus & Will Smith; is happiness always a pursuit’?

It offers regular blog posts and a growing menu of essential articles, and waves at the much bigger and older bethinking.org


Bespeaking is designed for those organising Lunchbars, speaking at Lunchbars and involved in Christian Persuader Student Groups (which identify and train future Lunchbar speakers).

Paul reasoned daily in the Hall of Tyrannus and all the residents of Asia heard the word of the Lord, both Jews and Greeks (Acts 19:9-10). We’re confident that the series of quality lunchbars occurring across the UK will similarly impact students from all backgrounds. Here are a few examples shared by students…

If you’re preparing to deliver a 20-minute apologetic talk that serves as a ‘gateway to the Gospel’, then you’ve come to the right place. If you’d value some personal feedback on your talk, just email your script or mp3 recording to abh@uccf.org.uk
