Strands

Strand groups are the heartbeat of NTE. With trained strand leaders, you will participate in 7 strand sessions with other students from other universities around Australia. Every day in small groups you will get to pray, discuss and apply God’s word to your lives. These sessions make up most of your time at NTE so we encourage you to make the most of your time in your strand groups by asking lots of questions and participate in discussions. If you’ve never been to NTE before, Strand 1 is the best place to start.
