WELCOME TO LOUGHBOROUGH
We offer loads for students at the Junction Church Loughborough. In fact, you’ll rarely hear us even refer to you as a ‘student’ because here, you’re simply part of the family, not an outsider. As well as our Sunday services we host Sunday lunches (every week), mid-week life groups, leadership development, in depth teaching on theology, conferences, worship community (including worship nights), daily WhatsApp devotions, social action projects, missions, hangouts in homes around the area and a whole array of other stuff too. We also run an event on campus called ‘VIBE AT THE UNION’ too. Thing is, you never have to do life on your own. We are absolutely passionate about championing you to become everything God has called you to be. It’s the very heart of who we are.
