Understanding and Sharing God's Word

The Philip Project is a training programme that aims to train Christian international students and professionals to both understand and share God’s Word. Additionally, it seeks to develop both the skills and character to enable others to grasp the Bible’s message – wherever the student goes.

Why the ‘Philip’ Project?

In Acts 8 Philip encounters the Ethiopian eunuch who was returning home from Jerusalem, reading Isaiah. He asks him, Do you understand what you are reading?” And the eunuch replies, “How can I, unless someone guides me?” After Philip explains the good news of Jesus to him from the prophecy, the eunuch believes and is baptised – and goes home with a new understanding of the Bible, able to tell others about him. In the same way the Philip Project aims to help international students and professionals to understand the Bible and share it with others when they return home.

The Philip Project includes:

  • monthly training days led by experienced teachers with opportunities for students to practice giving Bible talks and leading Bible studies;
  • mentors meeting regularly with students for discipleship and encouragement; 
  • a national online meeting of all our groups. 

We presently have training days once a month in the locations listed below. Find out more and use the form to sign up.
