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 Autumn 2017 course starts on 4th October.
iExplore - 7.30pm every Wednesday during term time at Highfield Church Centre, Southampton.
This course 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, and to improve your English as well! No need to book in advance - just turn up! We finish for 9.30pm.

Over Autumn term we will be looking at what one part of the Bible shows us about Jesus and Christianity, please see our term card for more information. 
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.
