International Students at University of Alberta

 
Facebook

The International Friendship Group invites students from all over the world into our community. We hope this will be your home away from home! We welcome Canadian students who want to welcome and serve International students. We have monthly suppers in Canadian homes, trips, Bible discussions, etc. While we are a Christian group, we welcome International students from all beliefs and backgrounds!

 
 

Stay tuned for small group information!

Let us know if you want to hang out in person. James is happy to have lunch or tea with you. Small groups of IFG friends sometimes get together at a park or for a campfire on weeks when we don’t have official events. Contact James at [email protected]
Want to pray with someone? We like to pray together on Tuesdays from 1-2 PM starting Sept. 7. Welcome to join us. Contact James at [email protected] for more info.
Welcome to Rise ‘n Shine with Boon Sunday to Friday at 9AM for no more than 15 minutes. There will be an encouraging/challenging reading from the Bible and prayer for the day! Contact Boon at [email protected] for more info.
Boon is one of our IFG volunteers who likes biking and working out. He has two extra bikes. If you and a friend want to go biking with Boon, contact him at [email protected]. Boon works out at the Kinsman Sports Centre from 11 AM to 1 PM on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays. He could pick you up at the university to work out together. You would only need to pay the fee to work out at the centre.
 

Stay tuned for upcoming events!

 
We plan to hang out on Wednesday evenings from 6:30 to 8:30 PM in HUB Mall for video clips from The Chosen followed by Bible discussions. We’ll have snacks or supper together 🙂
