International Outreach 2014:
Every summer over 10,000 students from all over the world come to Cambridge to study English. Many of them would have little or no opportunity to meet Christians in their own country and are also often far more open to hearing about other faiths while away from home. The aim of Cambridge International Outreach is to offer friendship to these students and, if they wish, to share with them the Good News of Jesus Christ. Students from all over the world will be here. Will you?
The aim of the outreach is to build genuine friendships with international students and sensitively offer them the chance to hear about the Christian faith. To this end the team run two international cafés each evening, where there are activities like cultural evenings and pancake nights as well as optional Bible studies for those interested. Various activities (from volleyball to museum visits) take place in the afternoons to help us build friendships with students, and mornings are for team training on a whole range of cross-cultural issues and Bible study.
You don’t have to be an expert in cross-cultural communication or be fluent in five languages to be involved! The students are here to learn English, experience life in the UK and love to meet British people who are prepared to make time for them. All you need is a living faith in the Lord Jesus Christ and a desire to share the Good News with others. Any gifts/skills you have will be put to good use, but none are required.

The Cambridge International Outreach is organised by Friends International in partnership with UCCF and local churches.
