International Students

Welcome! Willkommen! Bienvenido! Chào mừng! Καλώς ορίσατε! !مرحبا स्वागत!


City Church offers a warm welcome to international students from all countries, faiths, and cultures.

Normally, we would love to see you at either of our two main Sunday church meetings, called services, which are open to everyone. They happen at 10:30 am and 6:00 pm in a building called the Octagon, which belongs to Edgbaston High School for Girls. The school is located right next to the Birmingham Botanical Gardens. If you need help finding us, you can click on this link or you can email us

However, during Covid-19 restrictions, we are not able to meet there. Instead, we are meeting online every Sunday morning at 10.30am. Click the link on the homepage to find the service, or watch it directly on our YouTube channel. There will soon be a chance to see some live content, and every week there is an opportunity to join a Zoom meeting to chat and meet others. We hope you will join us so that we can welcome you and get to know you, and so that you can learn more about Jesus and following him. 

Christian? not christian? not sure? 


Perhaps you thought Britain was a Christian country, and you are curious about the Christian faith. Or maybe you are already a Christian and would love to find a community of believers. Normally, every week we host a meal and opportunity to chat and study the Bible to learn more about Jesus and Christianity, called Dinner and Discussion, which happens on Tuesdays at our building at 29 Tiverton Road in Selly Oak (just 5 minutes walk from University of Birmingham's main campus).

Again, Covid-19 restrictions mean that we can't hold those meetings in person at the moment, but we hope to continue to offer similar content online. If you are interested, or want to get in touch with our international student team about anything else, please email Debs on to introduce yourself and find out more.

Friends international


Some members of City Church are working together with other Christians in Birmingham to provide a range of activities for international students through an organisation called Friends International. Their current programme of activities can be found here.
