Frequently Asked Questions

What is Veritas Fellowship?
Veritas Fellowship is an interdenominational Christian fellowship for graduate and professional students associated with the University of California Berkeley. We are sponsored and supported by a variety of local Christian groups, including InterVarsity Fellowship and the First Presbyterian Church of Berkeley.

What does Veritas Fellowship do?
We have two principal types of organized activities:

• Small Groups
• Large Group Meetings

Small groups are weekly meetings of about 6-8 people who meet to study the Word and share praises and prayer requests with one another. We have a variety of groups which meet on different days of the week; see here for a list.

Large group meetings occur once a month during the semester, usually on Thursdays. We typically have various activities scheduled: some of the things that have happened during large group meetings in the past include faculty speakers who come to share their testimony, panel discussions, talks by outside speakers or our own wonderful staff, worship evenings, and potluck dinners and social activities.

There are a host of other things we participate in, including retreats during the fall and spring semesters, various conferences, and service projects.

Where do large group meetings take place?
Our large group meetings sometimes take place on campus, and sometimes take place at First Presbyterian Church of Berkeley.  Please check the individual event pages for further details.  Meeting times will generally be 7 pm on certain Thursdays, once a month.

I want to join a small group. What do I do?
If you can, come to a large group meeting to meet a small group leader. If you cannot make it, please contact a small group leader directly.  Our small groups page has a list of small groups, including contact information for the small group leaders.
