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 Spring 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 3pm 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 those leading Credo Small Groups for the first time in Spring, and is open to anyone interested in the possibility of leading groups in the future.

This module will be offered at least once on Wednesdays and once on Thursdays (with the possibility of more depending on demand). We will schedule the module sessions to enable as many potential new leaders as possible to attend. After you have registered, we will be in touch to confirm session details.
