Internationals image

Welcome to St John’s Church!

International visitors and students are very welcome at St Johns and we hope that you will feel at home with us. We have a number of regular internationals in our church and many students who join us while studying in Birmingham.

You are welcome to join us on a Sunday for our regular gatherings. We meet at 10.00am and 6.30pm. We also hold special events for international students. We know that coming to a new country can be scary, and we’re here to help.


Home Groups

We think that the best way to feel at home is to be part of a home group. St John’s has many home groups that meet during the week. These provide an opportunity for Christians to meet together in a home for social events, bible study, prayer and friendship. We have some small groups which are perfect for internationals:



Come And Meet Each Other is a group for international women (pre-school children welcome). They meet for bible studies and activities.

  • Thursdays
  • 10am – 11.30am (Term time only)
  • £1 a session

For details, email Adele Cheatle or pick up a term card at St John’s.
