Manchester International Outreach (MIO)
On the first Sunday the team was commissioned at Grace Church and later prayed for at Holy Trinity Platt.
Each morning the team met for a training seminar on various cross-cultural topics, to equip them for relating to the international students during the evening cafés. In the afternoons they did flyering at the language schools and universities, inviting the students to the evening café.
