Welcome to the iExplore website. This site is for internationals in Southampton who would like to meet Christians and explore what Christianity is all about.

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

Our Spring 2018 course starts on 3rd January.

iExplore - 7.30pm every Wednesday until the end of Spring Term at Highfield Church Centre, Highfield Lane, Southampton, SO17 1RL.

This course is for anyone interested in exploring Christianity. We provide a meal (please note that this will be a more simple meal during January) and then spend some time together hearing and discussing what Christianity is all about. It's a great chance to find out more, and to improve your English as well! No need to book in advance - just turn up! We finish for 9.30pm.


During the Spring term we will be looking at different parts of the Bible each week to help us to understand What Christians Believe.

If you have any questions or would like to find out more, please fill in and submit the form above. Friends International also runs a programme of exciting events and trips for internationals throughout the year.
