If you're a student coming to Loughborough University this year, we reckon you're in for an incredible experience. To help you prepare for your move to Loughborough, we thought it would be helpful to chat to some students and ask them for their top tips on how to make the most of your time here. Have a look at the video to the right. Meanwhile, we'd LOVE to welcome you to the Junction Church in Loughborough town centre on Sundays, 10:45am. This is a really great community which is relevant and contemporary. Find out more by scrolling down below.

church loughboroughIf you’re a student looking for a church in Loughborough that’s upbeat, fresh and totally relevant to every day life, then you will LOVE the Junction Church. Students are at the heart of everything that’s going on here. Whether you’re into sport, music, community action, performing arts, media, tech, design, photography, kids work, youth work etc etc….. there are SO many opportunities for you to get stuck in! Our church is totally welcoming. No-matter who you are, where you’re from and what you’ve been through in life, we say ‘Welcome Home!’. That’s because we want our church to be like a home away from home for you while you’re at university.

Here’s what some of our Loughborough students had to say!

The Junction Church church is a community where you can grow and flourish. Here’s some of the things we do:


church loughboroughWE DO GREAT FOOD – Ok, this sounds totally shallow….we know. But when we say ‘great food’, we mean far more than that. This is about hanging out with great people, laughing, living, learning, getting encouragement, chilling out, being accepted, being real with each other. We seriously reckon you will LOVE it here. Oh….and the food really is great too!

church loughborough WE DO GREAT LIFE GROUPS – These happen throughout the week and they are SO good! Life Groups involve snacks, chats and prayer. The ‘chats’ revolve around the previous Sunday’s message, and how we can apply it in every day life. These are such a great way of growing in your faith, learning more about the bible and getting prayer for anything you’d like.

church loughboroughWE DO GREAT SUNDAYS – Our main Sunday morning service happens in a theatre (get directions here). So it’s basically a full on production. Yup, some people like church services that are quiet and contemplative. Not us. No. Our services ROCK!! If you’ve only ever known traditional church, then we strongly encourage you to challenge yourself and get into a more contemporary environment that’s going to stretch you. Hey, that’s what being a student is all about, right?!

If you fancy hanging out with us for the whole day on Sunday, then join our Leicester team too. We’re pioneering a new campus in the city. So after lunch together, we travel down there and do church all again. We’ll be doing more campuses in the future.
