We have a heart for students!

We love to involve our students. For example two of our students co-lead a youth-group between the ages of 14-18.


-Word Vision Café run by Friends International for international students in St John’s Church Parish Centre on Friday evenings during university term time at 7.30pm – 9.30pm (September start).

-Summer Talkabout Café for international students who want to improve their English on Monday evenings between 16 July until mid- September at 7.30pm – 9pm.

-Bring and share dinners and provide practical help with course assessments.

-Welcome lunch for students who resume their studies or who will start their university on Sunday 7 October from 10.30am at St John’s Church. We will be attending the Fresher’s Fair at the University of Leicester.

-Alpha course in January 2019. Join us to enjoy great food and explore your questions about life, meaning and faith.

Alpha is for everyone.

Whether you have Christian faith but seek to ask fresh questions, learn more, and deepen your faith …

Whether you have recently joined the Church and want to build new relationships …

Whether you want to explore life’s big questions and want to probe “Is there more to life than this?”

Life is busy. Every day we are asking so many questions: what shall I wear? What’s the weather going to be like? What’s happening today? How am I going to fit everything in? – But then there are those bigger questions. Like: Why am I here? Where am I heading? Is this it? Is there more to life than this? These are life’s big questions. But there is rarely enough time to think them through properly. We all have different perspectives on the meaning of life, and faith. And Alpha is an opportunity to explore life’s big questions. This is a great place to come together and talk about them. Openly and honestly. This is Alpha.


Interested in any of the above? We would love to hear from you!
