Veritas Christian Study Abroad in London, England

Veritas Christian Study Abroad in London, England

"God has shown me again and again how much I need to rely on Him every day. This experience has challenged me to think about my own beliefs and to become so much more aware and compassionate about the issues the world is facing." Virginia Bantz, Fall 2015

 

Studying abroad in London is the perfect place to learn abroad among a population rich in cultural diversity.  According to the Joshua Project, 35% of the people of London identify themselves as non-religious. However, there is a renewed effort by many churches to bring a message of hope through community service and outreach in this historically influential city.  Veritas Christian Study Abroad is excited to partner with local churches and missionaries to see this nation and our students grow closer to Jesus. 

The UK’s unmistakable contribution to global Christianity has been significant for centuries. From John Wycliffe, William Wilberforce and C. S. Lewis up to today – with the Alpha Course, 24-7 prayer and a host of writers, theologians and worship leaders – the UK continues to bless the nations of the world.  As you live your mission in London you will see why it is one of the most popular places to study abroad.
