Hi! We’re students from different Oxford colleges. We believe that Jesus died for everyone, from every part of the world, so we want to create opportunities for international students to encounter God and learn about his promises and love for them.
The current situation is stressful, particularly if you’re feeling isolated. We value community and would love to get to know you and support you however we can. We want to invite you to join us on Zoom for our 'Virtual Potlucks' each week to share a meal, have some fun, and chat about the things that matter. We also want to offer the opportunity to discuss faith-related questions in your own language. We currently have a number of Language Communities, in Mandarin, French, Italian, Spanish, Russian, and German. We can support you through prayer, and our international prayer meetings to bring together students around the world.
When we return to normal, we’ll continue all of this in person! And if you are an international student arriving in October, we'd love to warmly welcome you to Oxford by helping you carry your belongings to your college and inviting you to a social before Freshers' week begins. Just look out for us at the bus station!
If you’re wondering why we think we have such good news to share, want to know more about what Christians believe or just want to make new friends, please do get in touch! Whether you're from the Christian faith, another faith, or no faith at all, we'd love for you to join the 'Oxford International Student Christian Network' group on Facebook where you can find out more. Please feel free to drop any of us a message or email if you want to find out more about moving to Oxford, what OICCU does, or any other questions you might have. (For example, a great question is how many bubble tea shops does Oxford have? - the answer is currently 9!)
