Hey Church, I just wanted to update you with one or two developments regarding the Junction Church in Leicester which launches later this year.
The great news is that we’ve found a FANTASTIC venue to host our new Sunday night campus. It’s the Attenborough Arts Centre, Lancaster Road, LE1 7HA. This is in the city centre, just a 10 minute walk from the railway station and right beside Leicester University. If you’re a driver, the great news is that there is loads of free parking around the area on Sunday’s including a large carpark beside the venue. We’re really happy about this!
The one small snag is that we’ve had to adjust the date of our launch. Initially we’d planned to begin in Leicester on Sunday 16th October. However the Arts Centre is not available that night. So we made the call to put it back by one week and commence our Leicester campus on Sunday 23rd October. With the exception of just one other date in November (when the venue isn’t available), this will be our regular venue in the city.
The Attenborough Arts Centre is simply fantastic. If you like contemporary art, you’ll just LOVE this place. The gallery is brilliant – modern and spacious with loads of fascinating exhibits. There’s also a great coffee shop as you enter the centre which serves some of the finest coffee in town! If you happen to be in Leicester any time soon, it would be worth your while to take a look.
So between now and the launch of our Leicester campus in October, how can you help us?
There are four things you can do
1) PRAY FOR US
We are constantly aware how much we need God’s wisdom and favour. Launching a new Sunday night campus is a true step of faith. So we’d ask you to pray that God will guide our steps and provide the necessary resources in order to help us carry His good news in this amazing city.
2) SPREAD THE WORD
One of the BEST things you can do is to let your friends know that we’re launching in Leicester. Do you know a student coming to Leicester? We’d love to look after them when they arrive by providing a great church community for them. Will you get on your Facebook, Twitter and Instagram and spread the word? This will help us.
3) CHEER THE TEAM ON
We have a team of 11 people who are committed to being in Loughborough every Sunday morning and Leicester every Sunday night. We set the bar very high for this team. I have to say, they are the dream team. The gift mix is truly incredible. They need all the support and encouragement that you can give them.
4) PLAN TO BE WITH US
We’d love you to be with us for our launch on Sunday 23rd October. It would be great to see loads of Junction Church people there on the night. Looking ahead, if you’re part of the Junction Church, we’d love to see you ANY Sunday night at our Leicester campus. Remember, we are ONE CHURCH in TWO locations. There’s no pressure to be there every week. However just being there from time to time will be a great encouragement.
Anyway that’s just a few ways you can help us. Thanks so much for taking the time to read this! Find out more about the Junction Church Leicester HERE
