So we’ve created a home away from home for you. We do hangouts, socials, Life Groups and loads more. The are SO many opportunities to get involved in the life of the church and grow in your faith. Whether you’re into music, singing, tech, media, social action….there are literally dozens of ways you can serve in the life of the church.
Leicester is such a great place to study. It’s vibrant with life and culture. We love it! The Junction Church Leicester is a growing community in the heart of the city. As well as our main Sunday services, we also host student Life Groups during the week. These are great ways of connecting into the Junction church community, places where you can grow in your faith and get to know great people who you can do life with.
The Junction Church also has a thriving campus in the town of Loughborough (just a 12 minutes train ride away). This means we are one church in two locations. Our students from Leicester and Loughborough often get together for hangouts and events. Watch this space for some great stuff coming up this year!
