The Student Christian Movement is an inclusive and progressive group of people of many faiths and none, dreamers, philosophers, cynics and theologians. They meet at universities across Aotearoa to debate the big ideas, get involved in social change and explore faith and spirituality.
Founded in 1896, SCM Aotearoa has a proud history of progressive theology and active involvement with current affairs in the world, Church and student life. SCM Aotearoa connects local SCM units in tertiary institutions throughout New Zealand and also globally through the World Student Christian Federation.
What does this actually look like though?!?
There are groups at Uni’s across the place, who are each their own SCM unit – and of course they each have their own flavour!
There are pizza nights, study sessions, public lectures, pub debriefs, prayer labyrinths, theological discussions, yarn bombing, solidarity nights and a bit of student activism. It’s about being real, being challenged and being together!
Take a look at what SCM is up to at the moment:
