Christian group for international students
 

We are happy to share some information about a christian group of international students from Umea University and SLU that you are welcome to join.

We meet every Sunday 7pm at Ålidhemskyrkan to discuss biblical topics and have a good time together. We share our thoughts and experiences as Christians but also to help each other in our daily lives in Umeå. Sometimes we plan different activities together. Everyone who is a Christian or who is just interested to come around, is very welcome to join us. We don’t belong to a specific church or denomination and experience the diversity in our group as a huge blessing.
