Koinonia changed my life when I was a student 30 years ago and I am delighted to still see it thriving today. The commitment to supporting and encouraging faith in students is tremendous. I am still in touch with some of the leaders today and have a lot of respect for their calibre. The practical ecumenism really works on the ground and is a good model of how Christians from different denominations can serve together.

I first got involved with Koinonia in 1989 when I was a student in London. I found this group of Christians to be very supportive and formative in my own journey of faith. More recently, I became an ordained Roman Catholic priest and I owe much of my spiritual and personal development to Koinonia. I am still in contact with many friends from the Antioch Community and regard them as part of my family.

Our Legend of The Week is Amiel! Marco has a few words to say on his birthday!

I’ve known Amiel for around 2/3s of a year now, but in this short time, I was able to observe how remarkable of a man he is. I am grateful for all the meals and drinks together, walks, and for him setting aside some time to show me around the city. It shows how selfless he is. Amiel is also zealous to love and serve the Lord, whether or not it will stretch his limits. He is faithful in praying every day and in the services he takes on even with the busy schedule he already has. He is a man with great goals and ambitions, but that doesn’t stop him from putting God first. Happy Birthday, Amiel! God bless you!
