It can be a scary thing arriving at University, especially if that is in a new country too! Rebekah Jones and the internationals team want very much to welcome you to Birmingham and into the life of the Christian Union.
We would love to get to know you and help you during your time at the University of Birmingham, whoever you are, wherever you are from and whatever you believe. We would also love to give you an opportunity to find out about the Christian faith. We do this through organising social events to help international students to meet other students (both British and other internationals), providing a fantastic opportunity to experience Christian friendship and to hear about Jesus, maybe for the first time. Do get in touch with us - you're very welcome to all and any events.
You are also welcome to any of the other activities the Christian Union puts on - please do not feel confined to the events specifically organised for international students.
Let's Chat happens on Zoom on Mondays at 1-2pm. It's a great opportunity to talk to some friendly UK students in a relaxed environment and ask us any questions you have about living in the UK! If you can't stay for the full hour, you're more than welcome to just join us for a few minutes: it would be lovely to meet you!
English Club is a weekly Zoom call on Thursdays at 5-6:15pm. We begin by playing a game together, followed by doing some fun English practice activities or learning about an interesting part of UK culture! We then discuss a short part of the Bible together in groups. It would be great to see you there, so please join us at both Let's Chat and English Club to meet new friends and practise your English!
