Just Say Hello logo

It's easy to just say “hello”,
but it can make a huge difference to someone.

That’s why Friends International are inviting you and your church to ‘Just Say Hello’ – a time for stepping forward to welcome international students to the UK and Ireland.

Although universities up and down the country are reeling from the impact of Covid-19, thousands of students have arrived for the start of the new academic year. This is where Christians can step in to welcome, befriend and share the Good News.
