Welcome to iExplore. iExplore is a weekly meeting for internationals in Southampton who would like to meet Christians and explore what Christianity is all about by understanding the Bible.

You're welcome to join us wherever you are from.

Our Summer 2019 course finishes on 19th June, but there are plenty of chances to meet up over July and August. You are always welcome to join us.

7.30pm Wednesday at Highfield Church Centre, Highfield Lane, Southampton, SO17 1RL. See term card for July and August dates. 

iExplore is for anyone interested in exploring Christianity. We provide a meal and then spend some time together hearing and discussing what Christianity is all about. It's a great chance to find out more, meet others and make friends. No need to book in advance - just turn up! We finish for 9.30pm.
