This is a project to help to Chinese students to settle down in the UK during studies and provides them with encouragement and support.
Stand by me pairs mentors and students together in series meetings on a regular basis, to provide emotional and advisory support as well as give a chance to facilitate learning and to experience other cultures.
The church offers a mentorship training for those who are interested in participating in the project and provides pastoral care who may be going through tough problems or circumstances.
