More information:

Who is Shenley Welcomes for?

This group is for anyone who wants to grow in confidence in speaking English. If you are new to the UK, or you have been here for years, you are welcome. 

What happens at a session?

Each session will be a mix of welcome, fun activities, and guided conversation in small groups. There are native speakers in each group. We will use pictures, resources and games to get you using English. All with drinks and snacks.

How much does it cost?

Shenley Welcomes is completely free.

Are these ESOL lessons?

No. Shenley Welcomes is not a formal language class. It's a friendly space to talk together in English with some native speakers. We'll learn through fun activities and guided conversation together.

Can I bring a child?

We want to be as welcoming as possible, so if you need to bring a pre-school child with you, you can. You will be responsible for your own children during the session, and some simple toys will be provided.

Do I need to be a Christian to come along?

No! Shenley Welcomes is for anyone. It is run by Christians from Churchcentral South, but this is not a religious service or activity. We welcome people of all faiths or no faith equally.
