Friends International Student Event


At Chertsey Street we run events for international students. We want to provide a very warm welcome and help you settle into life in Guildford and in the UK.

To help with this we partner with Friends International and the Globe Cafe at the University of Surrey to help run events that help you: find friends - international and local British people; find out about British culture (like Pancake Day, Christmas and Easter); enjoy visiting other parts of Britain (like the Isle of Wight, the surrey hills and other towns in the UK); improve your English with local people (like our Quest group); enjoy a meal with a local family and learn about the Christian faith.

These activities are open to all international students whether you identify with a particular religious background, or not. Our services are for all people, so whether you are a Christian looking for a church family, or someone who wants to just look and see, you can find your place with us at Chertsey Street.

We hope you will come back again and again, and we will have the chance to be an important part of your time in the UK.
