Sometimes life on campus can be a bit hard, especially if you are far from home in a foreign country trying to figure out how everything works. Life gets even harder when you’re a christian struggling to find other Christians on campus. If you are an international student who is struggling with one or both of these, or just stressed out by daily student life, or simply interested in connecting with international and German students, we as part of the IFES want to give you a break from your daily struggles. A TIMEOUT so to say.

With TIMEOUT we want to give you the opportunity to relax from your daily struggles as an international student. As well as creating both, a platform acting as a hub for Christian students from where to form smaller bible study groups and a way to reach out to our big local international student community. Since our Sunday meetings  are far to short to have in-depth conversations about the issues we talk about, we want to encourage Christian international students to form smaller bible study groups. So drop by every Sunday afternoon 5pm, have some tea or coffee, meet friendly faces, connect with fellow Christians and engage in friendly discussions on various topics.


Isolation! :
With the current Covid-19 crisis going on we sadly had to make the decision to cancel all current and future meetings of TIMEOUT till Easter

BUT nevertheless we want to stay connected with all of you. Therefore we came up with a few creative ideas, while we are still working on a few other ones (e.g. digital German table). In order to get in contact with us during these times, write us an e-mail to the following adress:

In order to keep connected with you, we offer you regular Skype conference calls to clarify things and talk about our and your way of coping with this situation. Furthermore we don’t want to miss the uncover reading either, so we implemented an additional weekly call, where we, together with everyone interested, explore the word of God in these times of uncertainty.

Apart from that you naturally can reach us via whatsapp or Skype whenever and with whatever you want. You can either write a SMS to the following number: 015222113743,
