Welcome to Yale! We pray that you will feel at home in this place.

The International Church at Yale is an international, interdenominational community of followers of Jesus who gather for worship at Yale. Our vision is to encourage one another to grow in love and faith so that we may serve as a visible representation and witness to the Kingdom of God on the Yale campus and serve the university community, particularly its international students, scholars, faculty, and their families.

Our primary weekly meeting is on Sunday mornings at 10:30am.  See the sidebar for the location.  Anyone is welcome to attend our services, regardless of whether or not you have any religious background. You are welcome, no matter whether you consider yourself a believer in Jesus, or are curious to learn more about the Christian faith, or simply want to practice your English.

We also offer an English Conversation Class on Sunday mornings at 9:30am. This is not a religious meeting, but a fun chance to practice English and ask any questions you might have, for example about tips for surviving at Yale. More information is here: English-conversation

We hope that you will find us to be a warm and caring community that welcomes you in friendship and helps you to feel at home here at Yale. Our services are informal, and you are welcome to come wearing whatever clothing you wear every day. American students and scholars and their families are also welcome at our services - particularly if you would like to help international students feel at home in this country. We also have a bilingual-language home Bible-study group and a prayer meeting, both meeting every week.

If you have any questions about our church or our worship services, feel free to contact Greg or Vicky as listed below.

Our church partners closely with the Yale International Christian Fellowship, which organizes an “Alpha Course” designed to help people explore questions they may have about the existence of God, the purpose of life, the meaning of the Bible or what it means to be a Christian. If you would like to know more about this Alpha Course, please contact Rev. Andrew Cunningham at cunningham.andrew@sbcglobal.net.

The best source of news on what is happening with our church is our email list. Please contact fred.sigworth@yale.edu to get the latest announcement and be added to the list. Also we see our Coming Events page.

We wish you a successful and blessed experience at Yale, and hope that we may have opportunity to meet you personally.

Yours cordially,

Vicky Sigworth, elder
