Welcome to all Students
Oadby Baptist Church has a growing number of students in the church. Located just a short walk from the halls of residence for Leicester University and on the main bus route (31), we offer a place to come and worship and meet others. We are not a 'mega student church' but more of a home from home and many of our students come for just that reason. Our morning service at 10.30am is probably the better one for students, but we also have a variety of services on Sunday evenings at 6.30, including prayer for the world with communion and a worship hour every other month.
Many of our students who have now graduated continue to attend the church and are good friends. We all, current students and past, meet up regularly outside of church as well whether it’s a social drink, lunch or various events such as the annual new year party where many of our ex-students come back for the night for a reunion!
We have events running through-out the week for which we are always grateful for people wanting to get involved. Whether God has called you to help with youth, worship or make cakes, you're very welcome.
Ideas For Getting Involved:
Boys' Brigade - Meeting every Monday evening
Girls' Brigade - Meeting every Tuesday evening
Klubb - For kids aged 10 - 14, meeting every Friday evening
Sunday Morning - For all ages at 10.30am
Sunday Evening Youth Group - For over 13's at 7.00pm
Bulrushes - For toddlers, meeting every Thursday morning.
The Sanctuary - Meeting every Tuesday morning, and helping with serving teas & coffees.
If you need help finding the time to pray, we have the answer. We meet every first Saturday of the month at 8.30am. Come along and help yourself to a free breakfast and spend some quiet time in prayer. We also have a time where you can share things which you feel need prayer and someone will pray with you.
Missing homemade food? Not a problem. We hold student lunches on most weeks, which are hosted by a variety of our church members in their homes. A great way to get to know people your own age and fill your stomach at the same time.
Leicester University Chaplaincy has an excellent range of activities and support for international students as well as those from the UK, serving free refreshments throughout the day Monday-Friday and offering a lovely space to relax and unwind. It’s just across the road from the campus. The chaplains and local Christians run extra events and activities there during International Students Week.
