Making Jesus Known since 1931

Conversation Partners

Japanese Conversation Partners


We are really lucky in Durham to have an overseas campus of Teiyko university, where Japanese students come over for 6 months to learn English. We run a conversation partner programme which pairs up a Japanese student with a member of the Christian Union. Partners are encouraged to meet up as often as they like to hang out, practise English, share food, culture and other interests.

On Monday evenings from 7:30-9pm we meet in the Teikyo campus to chat, play games, eat snacks and look at a part of the Bible together. It’s a great place to make friends from different cultures and discuss any questions about God, Jesus and faith.

Language Conversation Partners

This is an opportunity to be linked with a member of the Christian Union to meet up as regularly as you want. You can hang out, make friends, practise English and, if you’d like, explore what Christians believe. Anyone is welcome to sign up!

You’ll make new friends whilst practising your English one to one, sharing food, culture and other interests. Contact for more information or sign up here to be put in contact with a Conversation Partner. Any year group welcome.
