for international students in Birmingham

Would you like to visit a British church to see what it is like? We can bring you along, explain the traditions and then take you home for a meal afterwards. Just contact us.

If you already go to church in your home country, we can help you find a church home here in the UK. There are many welcoming churches in Birmingham. Contact us with details of where you live and your church tradition – or you could consider one of these churches which partner with us and are set up to befriend international students during their time in the UK:
