Christchurch University of the Third Age (U3A) offers a programme of educational and leisure activities for those not in full-time employment, and is part of a worldwide movement. Members with similar interests meet during the day in small groups, usually weekly or fortnightly and at various venues. The main aim is to advance the education of retired & semi-retired people and assist them in pursuing their interests within a social environment.

Welcome to our new website
The design of this site has been revised to achieve a number of objectives:
To give the site a newer, fresher look.
To have a simpler, more intuitive menu structure.
To ensure each page can be viewed optimally on a range of devices including conventional PCs, tablets of various sizes and smartphones (without lots of finger-spreading).
This re-development will be ongoing for several more months - currently some of the most accessed pages on the site are new - the Home page, the Groups page, the What's On page and one or two others. On these 'new' pages the menu is always visible on the left of screen - this should make site navigation simpler and more consistent. Many of the other 'old' pages of the site have simply been transferred unchanged to the new site - these will be redeveloped over time.
