JUNCTION CHURCH NEWS!
Scroll down for all the latest Junction Church news
THE PAST 6 MONTHS…
The first half of 2017 has seen significant growth in the Junction Church. There has been an influx of new faces, many of them having never been to church before. Since January, nearly 200 people have made decisions to embark on their own journey of following Jesus. We’ve also formed a load of new life groups. Meanwhile, our equip courses have proven very popular with dozens of people turning out over four Tuesday nights to study a choice of subjects in a bit more depth. We’re really encouraged by the health of our church community.
SUMMER MADNESS – AUGUST
This is a week of serving the community in one of Loughborough’s main residential areas from 21-27 August. We’ve arranged an entire programme so kids can have the best week of games & sport, giving mums and dads a much needed break during the final part of the long summer holidays. All our kids workers are trained and CRB compliant. We’ll also be serving practically in the community at the local fate as well as hosting coffee mornings at ‘the hut’, a local community hub. Then on Sunday 27th August, we’re hosting a special community service at our Loughborough service (at Loughborough College Theatre) followed by a fun day afterwards (which includes a community BBQ). Whatever you do, don’t miss this!
Every week, we produce church news – a 3 minute video which keeps people informed about what’s happening in the Junction Church. Everything is produced in house, including the soundtrack. We’ve had numbers of people comment on how much they like the music. So we thought we’d release it as an album – all 14 tracks. It’s called VIBE. This is all original, creative, quirky and fresh. VIBE is the perfect album for travelling, listening to while you’re at the gym or just for chilling. It’s available on iTunes. To hear a preview, click HERE. Later this year, the Junction Collective will be releasing some more original worship music. Watch this space!!
EQUIP COURSES – SEPTEMBER
We have a new series of EQUIP courses coming up this September. These are great teaching courses where you can dig deep and grow further in your faith. These are opportunities to study the bible, grow in your faith, get planted in the house and explore more about Jesus. You can see the choices and book in now. Click HERE for more details.
TEACHING ON THE HOLY SPIRIT – OCTOBER
As a church, we passionately believe in the work of the Holy Spirit today. So over three Tuesday nights this October, our lead pastor Roy Todd will be bringing a series of teaching that will help us understand the Holy Spirit’s work better and experience him today. During this time, he’ll be praying for people to be filled with the Holy Spirit too. This teaching is happening on Tuesday 2nd, 9th & 16th – hosted at Loughborough Baptist church at 7:30pm. Be sure not to miss this!
BAPTISM CELEBRATION – NOVEMBER
During the past year, we’ve baptised dozens of people. This is a sign of how our church has been growing. We’ll be hosting our next baptism celebration on Thursday 2nd November at 7:30pm – hosted at Loughborough Baptist Church. This is a great opportunity to celebrate the goodness of God in the lives of numbers of people who have recently decided to follow Jesus. If you’d like to know more about why we believe in baptism, read a helpful blog HERE.
V3 CONFERENCE – 11-12 NOVEMBER
V3 is one of the main highlights in our church calendar. This is the Junction Church conference – a weekend of worship, ministry and the opportunity to catch God’s heart for our area. We’re got some great guest speakers coming to be with us and a fantastic kids programme so mums and dads can enjoy the conference too. You can find out loads more information and book in by clicking HERE.
CHRISTMAS CAROL SERVICES – DECEMBER
We LOVE Christmas at the Junction Church. This year, we’re offering four carol services, all special and all unique. Sunday 3rd December: Contemporary Carols. Sunday 10th December – Classic Carols. Sunday 17th December – Community Carols. Sunday 24th December – Christmas Eve Carols. We’ll be giving more information nearer the time.
KEYNOTE TEACHING SERIES – JANUARY 2018
Every January, we start the new year off with our Keynote teaching series. This is a theme that we strongly feel God wants us to focus on that will set the tone for the year ahead. Our theme for 2018 is FREEDOM. We’ll be looking at what it truly means to live in freedom, why true freedom is found in Jesus, how to break free from hindrances in our lives and much more. This starts on Sunday 13th January.
