SMD INTERNATIONAL

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 3pm, have some tea or coffee, meet friendly faces, connect with fellow Christians and engage in friendly discussions on various topics.

TIMEOUT &…

… winter’s comin‘! :
As we move into the colder and darker half of the year we want to keep in touch with you. Be it online or through physical meetings.

Moving into our second year of TIMEOUT and our second Covid-semester we want to accompany you through your student life. Yet with this persisting reality of Covid-19 we cannot guarantee weekly physical meetings as the situation is immensely dynamic often leaving us only days to change plans. Also hygiene concepts mean that we can only provide room for a limited amount of attendants.

If the worse comes to worst we will move into the realm of online conferences, where we would meet in our jitsi room (teeei is the password 😉 ). So join us Sundays at 3pm with a cup of your afternoon tea (or coffee) get comfy and enjoy our weekly conversations.

Drop by if you like at our facebook page, or our Instagram for additional info on our group as a whole (English AND German). 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,
or write us an e-mail at smdfreiberg@mail.de.

As we currently don’t have our own location and instead use locations not exclusively provided to us, we are relying on the hygiene concept the TeeEi has in place. Therefore we’d like you to provide your credentials in order to be signed into our attendance-list, as well as to disinfect your hands thoroughly.
