International Outreach 2014:

Cambridge

 

university-of-cambridge

 

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?

 

Where

Cambridge

 

When

Team 1: 6 - 20th July

Team 2: 20th July - 3rd August

Team 3: 3rd - 17th August

Team 3X: 3rd - 24th August

 

What

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.

 

Who

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.

 

Cost

£110 to join one team. £145 to join two teams. Team3X costs £120.
