for international students in Birmingham

A great way to grow as a Christian is to join a small group where you can study the Bible together and support each other. You may find a suitable group in the church that you attend.  Here are some groups which we offer:.

Dinner and Discussion

On Tuesday evenings in Selly Oak, this group meets to share a meal and then study the Bible together. The meal is free and there is always a vegetarian option. For details of the next meeting, see the Social Activities page or contact us.

International Home Group, St John’s Church

This group meets on most (but not all) Wednesdays in Bearwood, which is just north of Harborne. There are often lifts available from Harborne. It is a mixture of local Christians and internationals. Contact us for more details.

Indonesian Fellowship

This meets monthly but it also has a Bible study most Friday evenings during term time in the Selly Oak area. For more details contact John and Anne Ruck at jaruck@btinternet.com .

Chinese Bible Study

There are groups in Mandarin, Cantonese and English run by the Birmingham Chinese Evangelical Church. See their website for more details. There are also longstanding lunchtime groups meeting in Moseley (Thursdays) and Bartley Green (Mondays). Contact us if you are interested.

There are other international groups which meet in other areas of the city, but the venue and date changes according to the needs of the group at the time. Please contact us for more details, telling us which area of the city you live in.
