KOREAN STUDENT GROUP
민트 한인 교회에 오신 것을 환영합니다 - 주일 오전 10시 30분에 한국어와 영어 예배 (격주로)를 드립니다.
The Mint has its own Korean language activities, and many Korean students at the University and the language schools in Exeter are actively involved. We welcome all Korean speakers, whe ther or not you have a specifically religious or Christian background. For more details see the Mint International page – which also gives details of the many other nationalities currently sharing in the life of the Mint.
The Chaplains, Andrew Sails and Sungil Han, will always be pleased to meet with you to talk, whether or not you have any other links with the Chaplaincy. If you are facing a crisis, or if you just feel in need of a chat, let Andrew or Han know and they will be very happy to arrange to meet up with you, either in the Chaplaincy Room in the Forum, or at the Mint.
meets every other week for conversation and discussion led by various members of the group. It is quite a small and informal group, with a mixture of recent graduates, postgraduates and others. It is a group where postgraduate students have often found a good place to relax and talk - and hopefully think! Plans for this term are to meet twice a month on a Wednesday evening at 7.45
We have many nationalities here at the Mint - International students are particularly welcome at our light informal lunches at Church after the Sunday morning service.
Our African Fellowship meets on the last Friday of each month, and Korean language worship is on Sunday
Studying at a Language School?? The Mint welcomes students from SKOLA, GLOBE, ISCA and other Language Schools –– you will be very welcome!
