International Christian Student Community
We Are HOST Eindhoven
HOST is a community for international students that aims to help international students to feel at home in Eindhoven. At HOST you can expect hospitality, to build friendships, and to be encouraged to meet God. We organize various formal and informal events, focussed on helping Christian international students grow in their faith and share experiences. These events also include activities that are a lot of fun, and involve cultural exchange. However, you don’t have to be a Christian to come along; we welcome all students regardless of their cultural background or religion!
HOST Eindhoven is part of IFES (International Fellowship of Evangelical Students), an organization supporting ministries to international students in cities all over the globe, among which 20 cities in the Netherlands. Furthermore, IFES Netherlands organizes a number of activities where you can meet many international students studying in different cities in the Netherlands.
Our main meetings are on Friday evenings, when we meet for dinner and a Bible study! Every second week it is at Dommelstraat 6 in Eindhoven city center, and every other week we meet in small groups at various locations in Eindhoven.
Would you like to have regular meetings with a Dutch family over a meal in their home? We match international students up with a host family either individually or in pairs so that you can learn more about Dutch culture in a family setting.
Sometimes, we organize other fun and cultural activities such as BBQs or dinners inspired by other nationalities and cultures.
As a Christian international student, finding relevant information about the city you live in can be daunting. Fortunately, we've put together a list of useful resources including international-friendly churches and links for finding accommodation in Eindhoven.Read more
