On Sunday, Jesubites filled the darkened chapel clutching candles for the annual carol service. Every space was taken – with many people sitting on cushions – in order to share some Christmas cheer at the beginning of 8th week.
There were many congregational carols, all sung enthusiastically and accompanied by an impressive brass section, including ‘Once in Royal David’s City’, ‘Hark the Herald’ and ‘O Come All Ye Faithful’. The choir sang some beautiful music throughout, from Rachmaninov’s ‘Bogoroditsye Dyevo’ (yes – in Russian!) to ‘For Unto Us a Child is Born’ from Handel’s Messiah to the pretty ‘Cherry Tree Carol’ which has some rather peculiar words. The music was interspersed with readings telling the Christmas Story, read by a fresher, a finalist, a graduate, a fellow and the Principal.
Thank you to everybody who helped make it such a beautiful service.
The results are in and the JCR committee for next year are…

Saturday saw the mens’ novices win the Nephthys Regatta after some spectacular races. This is a fantastic achievement, particularly ahead of Christ Church Regatta this coming week. You can read the boat club’s report of the success here.
The JCR has voted (well – 37% of the electorate), and it has been decided that next year’s JCR President will be Leo Gebbie with 63% of the vote. Full results can be viewed here.
Congratulations to everybody who has received their results and made their offers! We can’t wait to meet you in October, but in the meantime, enjoy the rest of your summer. Have a look at the Freshers’ Week page and join the Facebook group for this year’s freshers called ‘Jesus Freshers 2013’, particularly if you have any questions.
The JCR now has its own twitter account @JesusOxfordJCR. Click here for the latest news, sports and election results from the JCR.
The last JCR meeting of term will be tomorrow at 7pm. Just two motions, but lots of pizza. See you all there.
The JCR hot tub has been ordered and is arriving at Barts tomorrow afternoon. It will be installed, brought up to the right temperature settings, and ready to go by Wednesday morning. Don’t worry – the JCR committee will be testing it first to make sure it’s working just right.
If you’re going to be in Oxford on Saturday of 8th, make sure you sign up for the Leavers BBQ – it’s a huge celebration for the leavers, but everyone is invited and should be a great event. Sign up using the hall sign up system now.
Massive thanks to Aida and everyone else who helped out at the charities garden party yesterday. I’ve never been able to pass off day time drinking as a good deed before.
Congratulations to everyone who was elected last week to the JCR and Freshers Committees. We’re looking forward to big things.
Finally, a quick reminder that Freshers will need to have checked out of their rooms by Saturday at 10am unless other arrangements have already been made.
Can’t believe we’re almost at the end of the term,
It’s what you’ve all been waiting for – the results of the latest JCR elections.
Emilia Carslaw was elected Arts Rep, Laura Neilson was elected IT Rep, Sam Flahive was elected Entz Rep, and Jess Rodger was elected as Social Sec for next term. No luck for RON this time around.
The 10 elected members of Freshers Committee (listed in no particular order) are:
Fraser Jay Myers (yes – he really will be coming back for his 5th Freshers Week)
The three charities that were elected were:
Oxford Homeless Pathways
Leukaemia and Lymphoma Research
Congratulations to everyone who was elected!
The last JCR meeting of term (sob), will be on Monday of next week. You therefore have only 7 days to get in any motions before the end of the year. And yes – as the last meeting of term, pizza will be provided. I’m hoping for a few good joke motions too.
This coming Saturday will be the annual Charity Garden Party at Stevens. There will be Pimms. There will be live music. It’s going to be great, and it’s all for a good cause. You can sign up now through the hall sign-up system.
Nominations are up (and will stay up until Tuesday lunchtime) for Freshers Committee and the IT Rep, Arts Rep, Social Sec, and Entz Rep positions on the JCR Committee. Make sure you don’t miss your chance to get involved.
And finally, there’s exciting news to come on the electricity subsidy front. I’ll release details as soon as I can, so stay posted.
Just two more weeks to go…
