English classes for our international community

Our English language classes take place on Tuesdays from 10:30-12:00 and 18:30 – 20:00, followed by coffee and time to chat.

We started these classes in the Baptist Church nearly ten years ago when there were large numbers of internationals coming to live and work in the area and when we saw their need to learn or improve their English.

We also wanted to reach out to them, help them integrate here and help them in practical ways to manage life in a foreign country. It has been a great pleasure over the years to meet and work with people of so many different nationalities and from all over the world.


The classes are run in the Hub at the Church and we have a united inter-church team of teachers, helpers and befrienders. As well as teaching English, we organise monthly social events for our students.

We are always happy to answer questions of faith and have literature available in several different languages.

New students of all ages and levels of English are welcome any time!
