Small World Café | 7PM Edith Morley G44

Small World Café is a weekly event open to all international and home students. It’s a great way to relax and get to know other students at Reading, usually over free tea and snacks. As part of the Café we give students an opportunity to explore who Jesus is during our optional Bible discussions.

We also organise sight-seeing trips around the UK. We have traveled to Bath, Stonehenge, Cardiff, Scotland and plan to visit many more places in the future! Check out our programme for this Term.

I love to come to Small World Café. This is the activity I must go every Friday. I can meet lots of nice people. They couldn’t be more friendly! At the same time, I can learn different cultures from all over the world by different topics every week.”  – Isabell | student from China
