At Christchurch Durham, we want to give international students a home away from home, and to give everyone the chance to hear the good news of Jesus.

What do we offer for international students?


Corners is a little community of people from every corner of the world and we love welcoming new people. We meet each week to hear about what Christians believe, learn about British culture, and have fun together.
We meet every Monday 6:30-8 pm in people's houses. If you woud like to find out more please email .

At our events, we enjoy good food and games together. After this, we hear a short talk from the Bible followed by a time to chat in small groups about what we've heard.
Whatever your beliefs or background, everyone is welcome to attend our events, even if you have lots of questions or just want to listen.


Buddies - Would you like to make a close British friend? Buddies are a great way to practice your English and to spend quality time with a UK student. We know lots of Christians at church who would love to get to know you and share their life with you. They'd also love to give you a chance to find out a little bit about Christianity and Jesus if you would like. If you'd like a buddy, message George (details below) and he will get in touch with you soon!
