We are a group of local Christians drawn from a number of different churches in Manchester under the umbrella of the Christian organisation Friends International and we love meeting international students. We also know that when you are studying away from home it can be hard to know how to make friends with ‘the natives’ or where to go with your friends to relax and have fun. For many years we have been running international student cafés in the city and students who have come say things like
‘the café really made me feel at home and helped me to understand British culture better’
‘iCafé is like a big family here in the UK’.
Some students are interested in finding out more about the Christian faith and we offer Bible studies and discussions as an option for those that want to – but there is no obligation to attend these.
