'Work hard, play hard' is a common saying amongst healthcare students that hopes to bring success and happiness. The NHS is consistently in the headlines and staff are at breaking point under the weight of increasing patient demands and thinly spread resources. All too often, our studies can leave us worn out, weary and wobbly in our faith. A far cry from any glamourous vision of university life we may have had.
As Christians studying medicine, midwifery and nursing, how is God involved in the work we have been called to? How do we become God's handiwork and carry out the good works he has prepared in advance for us? Amid the stress and burnout from exams and clinical placements, how can we come to Jesus and experience true rest?
John Wyatt, CMF President and Emeritus Professor of Neonatology, University College London, will be exploring these themes in his Bible talks. Prof Wyatt spent over 30 years working as a paediatrician and at the cutting edge of neonatal research within the NHS. He is a senior researcher at the Faraday Institute for Science and Religion, as well as a sought-after speaker and writer on medical ethics and related topics. He has authored several books including Matters of Life and Death.
There will be the opportunity to choose from 19 seminars covering a breadth of topics related to Christian faith and healthcare. There will be time during the weekend for prayer and reflection as well as to meet others from your region. There will also be plenty of good food, worship, a quiz and a ceilidh.
