About Prime

Part of our vision in Credo is to see movements of people giving themselves in active service of Christ, throughout uni and all of life. Prime is our training community to equip you in understanding, motivation and skills for this exciting cause. A variety of training modules are offered each uni session (i.e. semester), led by an experienced coach. There are four Prime training hours in the week: Wed 3pm, Wed 5pm, Thurs 9am and Thurs 11am.


– Modules run for one hour per week, from week 3 until week 11 (Autumn and Spring sessions).
– All Prime training is designed to be practical, biblical and personally transformative, so any selection will be beneficial.
– Modules are capped in group size to enhance the coaching experience.
– $15 for each module of Prime training (covers materials).
– NOTE: not all modules are offered at each of the four training hours, so please choose carefully.



Registration for Autumn 2019

Gospel Shaped Study:

Can a fail ever please God, or an HD dishonour him? While we all want to succeed academically, to truly thrive at uni we need Jesus. We will discover together how the truth of Jesus impacts our everyday - even our study - and frees us to approach our degrees with God’s perspective, and to maximise our time at uni for his glory.

        - Two choices: Wednesdays 5pm or Thursdays 9am

Small Group Leaders' Essentials:

Vital training on why and how to help your small group become a welcoming community transformed by God’s Word. This module is essential for all who are leading a Credo Small Group for the first time this Autumn, and is open to anyone interested in the possibility of leading groups in the future.

        - Four choices: Wednesday 3pm, Wednesday 5pm, Thursday 9am, or Thursday 11am

Cross Cultural Kingdom Living:

Whether you’re crossing the seas or even your street, our world is full of different perspectives about what it means to be human and so how to flourish. Open your eyes and prepare for whatever God has in store for you – whether it’s serving in Sydney or working as a Christian abroad, living out the gospel at home and uni, or considering overseas mission.

        - Four choices: Wednesday 3pm, Wednesday 5pm, Thursday 9am, or Thursday 11am

Engaging with Buddhism:

“Mix and match” Buddhism (from mindfulness meditation to karma) is probably the most in-vogue religion in the secular West. And combined with the fact that many international students come from Buddhist background countries, the need for Christian students to biblically understand and pastorally interact with this spiritual force in our world has never been more vital.

        - One choice: Thursdays 11am

Engaging with Islam:

A quarter of the world and many of our classmates follow Islam. It's often misunderstood and feared, but ignorance helps no one. This module will challenge Christians to engage socially & theologically with Islam.

        - One choice: Thursdays 9am
