Many come to the UK interested to find out more about the Christian faith or to discuss the Christian perspective on life questions.  Here are some groups you can join to do this:

Dinner and Discussion

On Tuesday evenings in Selly Oak, this group meets to share a meal and then to discuss some of the big questions of life and discover what the Bible has to say about them.  The meal is free and starts at 6:30pm and there is always a vegetarian option. The discussion runs from about 7:30 – 8:30pm.

For details of the next meeting, contact Marty Lenski at or +44 7951 767954.
