There are three main ways to be involved directly with the work in Guildford:
Volunteer with us
Join us on our events and meet students. Get in touch below and ask for an application form*.
Host for us
Simply open up your home and dining table to students. Get in touch for an application form*, we'll come and meet you and talk about what you can expect and answer any questions you might have and then we'll connect you with students.
Open up your church
Conversation classes, a social space, whatever it might be, we can help you set up something to welcome international students in your church.
*As we are a Christian charity we do ask our volunteers to be a practising Christian who is known to a local church and the form asks for a reference from a minister or leader in the church. If you have any questions about this, please do click the get in touch button.
Can't be involved directly, scroll down to see how you can still support us.
Help us welcome international students
Being an international student is often an isolating and tough experience. We also know life and the various pulls of work, family and ministry can mean supporters cannot be directly involved with the work. If this is you, then you can still be involved through prayer and giving financially.
We have a mailing list that keeps you updated on news and events, helps you pray for the work of Friends International in Guildford.
If you would like to discuss ideas with us on how your church can engage with international students or partner with us financially then please get in touch.
You can also support us as a charity financially.
