International Students

Overseas students and post-graduates have a special welcome and place in our church family.  Several of our regular church members have lived, studied and worked overseas and understand the particular excitements, delights and challenges of living in a new culture.  Whether you are on your own or have brought a spouse and children with you, whether you have left a church family back home or you know nothing about Jesus and are curious to know more, you are welcome at SB Baptist Church.

You may well meet our Friends International Student worker, Val Owens, in your first few days on SB campus and as a church we have a special programme of activities, meals, social occasions and events organised for you throughout the year.


International Student Fellowship

An opportunity to meet for bible study and friendship every Wednesday evening, usually in a local home, currently on Zoom.  Those wishing to investigate Christianity are very welcome. Contact Val Owens for information on 07942 073 750 or email
