Cambridge International Outreach 2015
Team 1: 5-19 July
Team 2: 19 July - 2 August
Team 3: 2-16 August
Team 3x: 2-23 August
The aim of the outreach is to share God’s love by building genuine friendships with some of the many thousands of international students who come to Cambridge during the summer to learn English. We want to sensitively offer them the chance to hear about the Christian faith. To this end the team runs two international cafes each evening, where there are activities like cultural evenings and pancake nights as well as optional Bible studies for those interested. Afternoons are a chance to invite more people to the events and to get to know the international students better, perhaps visiting a museum, playing volleyball or reading the Bible with them. Mornings are for team training on a whole range of cross-cultural issues and Bible study. On Sundays local churches host international guest services.
Prayerfulness, a willingness to serve, to learn, to take the initiative in meeting new people and to work hard are important qualities in all team members. Team members must join for the full team length.
£125 for a one team, or £160 if you come for two teams and £140 for 3 teams. The price covers meals (except for Saturdays) and accommodation in local Christians' homes.
Cambridge International Outreach teams are coordinated by the Cambridge Branch of Friends International with the support of local churches.
