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 to be part of the Just Say Hello Day – a time for stepping forward to welcome international students to the UK and Ireland.

As hundreds of thousands of international students arrive for the new academic year, Christians have a unique opportunity to welcome, befriend and share the Good News. Our Just Say Hello initiative will help your church to make the most of this opportunity.
