Welcome to Yale! We pray that you will feel at home in this place.
The International Church at Yale is an international, interdenominational community of followers of Jesus
who gather for worship at Yale. Our vision is to encourage one another to grow in love and faith so that
we may serve as a visible representation and witness to the Kingdom of God on the Yale campus and serve
the university community, particularly its international students, scholars, faculty, and their families.
Our primary weekly meeting is on Sunday mornings at 11:00am in Dwight Hall Chapel on Yale's Old Campus
at 67 High St, New Haven, CT 06520. Anyone is welcome to attend our services, regardless of whether or not
you have any religious background. You are welcome, no matter whether you consider yourself a believer in Jesus,
or are curious to learn more about the Christian faith, or simply want to practice your English.
We hope that you will find us to be a warm and caring community that welcomes you in friendship and helps you
to feel at home here at Yale. Our services are informal, and you are welcome to come wearing whatever clothing
you wear every day. American students and scholars and their families are also welcome at our services –
particularly if you would like to help international students feel at home in this country. We also have a
Chinese-language home Bible-study group that meets every week, in addition to other events that take place during the week.
If you have any questions about our church or our worship services,
feel free to contact our Pastor Rev. Joseph or Michele Cumming at
or by telephone at (203)777-9977.
Our church partners closely with the Yale International Christian Fellowship,
which organizes hospitality dinners for international students and scholars,
as well as an “Alpha Course” designed to help people explore questions they
may have about the existence of God, the purpose of life, the meaning of the
Bible or what it means to be a Christian. If you would like to know more about
this Alpha Course, please contact Rev. Andrew Cunningham at

have opportunity to meet you personally.
