Congratulations on being admitted to one of the universities in Uppsala! Regardless of whether this is your first semester or if you have been around for awhile, we are glad that you are here.

The summer is ending and autumn is just around the corner with a lot of events and gatherings.  The gospel choir God Tune have their first rehearsal on 19 September at 6.30-8.30 pm in Helga Trefaldighets Church and our services have already started.

Regarding our services, we have some great news. Starting on 19 September, we will meet on Tuesdays at 5.45 pm in Helga Trefaldighets Church for International Worship - 30 minutes of songs, prayers and readings in English. Afterwards, it is totally optional to join the choir God Tune. We hope to see you there and feel free to bring a friend! 

We also hope that your are interested in visiting our Rainbow Evenings 4 October and 29 November. These are evenings where we want to spark conversation focusing on LGBTQ-related questions. Each evening will have a specifik theme and a guest we have invited. Find out more about the Rainbow Evenings and other happenings this autumn on our website!

As always, you find us at our office at Övre Slottsgatan 7 (in the same building as the Uppsala Student Union) if you want to visit or book a confidential meeting with one of us. We know we say this a lot, but we are here for you regardless of belief, ethnicity, gender identity or sexual orientation. Nothing is too small or too big to talk about.

Best regards,
