      We have heard “being” is more important than “doing” and our doing should be an outflow of our being. So who are we? And as Christian med and dental students what distinguishes us from the rest? When we know our being we will know what we ought to do! This is an inaugural combined event between Bond, Griffith and UQ med and dental Christian students with a theme of "Our identity in Christ". Get excited for a night of praise & worship, bible reading and fellowship!
