International Students

Welcome to Dublin!

Whether you have come to Dublin as a language student, an undergraduate or a post graduate, we pray you will soon become part of the church family at Adelaide Road Presbyterian Church (ARPC). As a city centre church, ARPC has church members from all over the world, and you would be most welcome to join us at our Sunday services at 11 am and stay for a nice cup of coffee or tea afterwards.

ARPC International Café

If you would like to make new friends from Ireland and around the world, and get the chance to practise your English with native English speakers, then ARPC International Café is for you. We meet most Friday nights October – December and February- April,  but check for details, including extra events that may happen outside of these months.

At the café, we share a meal together and sometimes have special events like St Patrick’s Night, Understanding Irish Culture, and International Talent Evening.

A friendly group of Christians from Adelaide Road Presbyterian Church organises ARPC International Café, but you don’t have to be a Christian or to sign up before hand, just come along. All are welcome!

Wanting to investigate Christianity?

Your time in Ireland could be the perfect time to find out more about what Christians believe and begin to read the Bible. We regularly run a “Christianity Explored” course, which is in simple English and specially designed for international students.So whether you’ve never read the Bible before or you’ve studied it and have lots of questions, you’re very welcome to join us at 6.15 pm before café.

Come to ARPC International Cafe to find out more about when the course runs, or email
