making friends with other students
FOCUS exists to help international students from all over the world to learn about Jesus, to meet and make friends, and to have fun, while they are in Newcastle. Everyone is welcome to join us. We meet every Friday night for dinner, games and Bible study.
It doesn't matter if you know a little about Jesus or if you know a lot about Jesus. You may be a Christian or you may not be a Christian. Either way, we’d love to spend time with you.
Jesus said, 'If you hold to my teaching… you will know the truth and the truth will set you free'.
FOCUS takes Jesus’ words seriously. We’re all about knowing Jesus and seeking together to experience the freedom and peace He offers. With this goal, we meet together regularly to engage with the Christian message, pray and share the story of Jesus with others on campus.
We’re affiliated with AFES, but otherwise not associated with any one church or denomination and have people from a variety of Newcastle Churches helping out.
We warmly welcome people who aren't Christian but who would like to engage with Jesus. Just head over to the What's On page to find out details.
