About Us

Friends International Lancaster aims to encourage local Christians, from a variety of churches, to welcome, befriend and offer hospitality to international people who come to study in Lancaster. Although, there have been Friends International Staff workers since 2004, local people have been welcoming international friends ever since the University was established in the 1960s. As Christians, our hope is to share Christ's love with international students and, when asked, to take opportunity to share and explain the Christian message, but this is always within the context of respect for the diversity of backgrounds and beliefs held by all international students we meet.
