iCafé Internationals

For English speaking students: iCafé! Relaxed, Warm & Welcoming. We welcome all international students to join us to share culture, discuss, get to know some other internationals and Swiss as well!

 

About iCafé and VBG Zurich

VBG Zurich is a Christian student group at the University of Zurich and ETH Zurich. The group was founded in 1949 with the intention to promote an authentic and thought through Christian lifestyle. VBG is an interdenominational group, which desires to address pressing questions, as well as to discuss ways to live out the Christian faith in everyday life.

iCafé is the English-speaking part of VBG Zurich. We are a team of Christian students who want to bring together Swiss and international students and academics, enabling cultural exchange. We want to facilitate community as we share common interests and activities and create opportunities to explore the person of Jesus Christ through discussions. Our goal is that internationals from every background and faith feel welcomed and at home in our group. 

During the semester, iCafé takes place every Thursday from 7.30 to 10.00 pm. We meet at Zeltweg 18 (first floor).

Come and have a time of fun and conversation, make new friends and explore questions relevant to life in Switzerland from a Christian perspective! We offer cultural events, room for discussions, bible study groups and a lot of funny and crazy moments!
