Students
We Love Students! 


University is an exciting journey of freedom, responsiblity and adventure!!!

We believe students thrive when they get stuck into church family life - from getting involved in mentoring and discipleship, serving on a King's Church team and meeting regulary with your King's Church family.  

King's Church is a thriving family church who love students so you can expect to be invited for food, to be apart of family.  We're on a journey together to love and live like Jesus.
We run a Student Welcome Group to help students settle anbd connect with life at King's Church.

In October, we always start our family gatherings with breakfast from 10am - our main hall is filled with the fresh aroma of coffee & the sound of bacon sizzling.  So why not pop along from 10am for some breakfast and we'll see you soon!



 
ETHOS

In everyday language Proverbs 29:18 says that 'without a sense of vision in and for life we’ll live without purpose and do whatever we feel like doing'
 
We’ve summed up our church family vision in the tag-line:

Going and Growing
Journeying together, to love and live like Jesus...
   
We see church as a vibrant community living as a loving family.  Our vision is that everyone will understand God’s purpose, love Jesus passionately and live authentic Spirit-filled lives.

We believe some of the greatest resources people have are their dreams and gifts and that these are God’s way of involving us in His plan for the whole of creation.  We are committed to helping people discover and outwork their dreams and skilfully use their gifts.

We desire to cultivate an environment of faith, hope and love, expressing these through joy, generosity, care and a sense of adventure. 

We encourage everyone to live a Jesus-centred life and, as His apprentices, respond to His commission in the context of community.  We want to help people find a place to belong and experience the powerful effect of God’s love and grace.

We are motivated in every activity we do as a church family by Jesus’ love, life and mission.  This shapes how we function as His family, knowing that just as the Father sent Him so Jesus sends us.

Our key values fall into the two areas: ‘Going’ and ‘Growing’:

Going
  • A commitment to discipleship – both to be discipled and to disciple
  • Prioritising an intentionally missional way of life
  • To be hospitable and servant-hearted
  • To ‘sow’ people into communities, cities and nations
  • Exercise generosity by developing creative ways of blessing people

Growing
  • In love with God and people
  • In our Christ-likeness
  • In our ability to serve and prioritise other people and God’s will over our own
  • In influence
    
OUR TEAM
Team work makes the dream work...
   
We believe leadership is vital and can empower and release people to be all God has called them to be.  We don’t view or practice leadership in a hierarchical way but instead seek to exercise our leadership gifts and responsibilities through relationship, love and serving one another.
 
Our blueprint for leadership is to seek to emulate the flow of relationship that exists in the Trinity. 

The King’s Church family has a Core Leadership Team and a wider Leadership Team.  These teams offer a great blend of gifts and personalities, all passionate about Jesus and committed to serve and lead by example.

Andrew and Trenna Hulley are the team leaders and have been caught with a vision of the church being like a forest as opposed to a plantation. 

Some key characteristics of a plantation are:
  • Grown and managed to meet demand
  • Mono-cultural/single species
  • Highly sophisticated scientific methods used to produce high yield
  • Nothing else grows in them
  • Highly linear, only reproduces by deliberate planting
  • Destroyed by fire
  
A forest on the other hand: 
  • It’s main purpose is life
  • There are many interconnected relationships across a variety of species
  • Simple, yet amazingly diverse
  • Naturally occurring lifecycles mean they are self-managed
  • Easily reproduced
  • Fire causes them to reshape and releases the next generation
  
 
A useful image of how we see our leadership team working is in the way a cycling team functions. These teams have a leader and are made up of people with specific skills for different parts of the race i.e. a hill climber, a time-trialer, a sprinter. 

Each rider is secure in their particular skill and part within the team.  Every team member rides for the good of the team and they ride in a sacrificial way.  Team members will ride in a way that protects and enables the most skilled for that section get to the front at the right time.  The ‘senior’ rider at any given stage is the one most fitted for the task at hand.  So it is with the Core Team... though Andrew and Trenna lead the team, others come to the fore at different stages.

ABOUT US
We are a vibrant and diverse community of people, from across Loughborough and the Charnwood area, that are passionately in love with Jesus. 
 
We are convinced that God’s ideal for His people is to be a loving family.  So, whether you’re young, old, single or married, and whatever culture you’re from you’ll find a sense of belonging because we’re passionate about people.
 
As committed followers of Jesus our desire is to see our town, region and this nation transformed by His life and love.  We gather in small ‘life groups' at various times throughout the week, and in larger numbers on most Sundays too. 
 
Relationships with various national and international leaders, including those who function in the Ephesians 4 roles of apostle or prophet, and also links with other church families have been, and continue to be, crucial in our ongoing growth and development.  The group of churches we are part of is known as “Together” www.togetherweb.net
 
We’d love you to find a sense of belonging with us as we journey together to love and live like Jesus. 
       

A Brief History:
   
King's Church began in 1982 as Loughborough Christian Fellowship, having been ‘planted’ as a new church family by Leicester Christian Fellowship (now known as All Nations Church, Leicester), and was part of the ‘Harvestime’ group of churches under the leadership of Bryn Jones and others – later known as ‘Covenant Ministries International’.
 
In 1996 King's Church launched the Small World Nursery (our own Christian ethos nursery) which continues to serve local parents in Charnwood.  In 2007, the charity TwentyTwenty was launched, to help disadvantaged young people into education, employment or training. This has now grown into a nationally recognised centre of excellence in its own right. King’s Church still initiates and carries out many community-based projects – the aim being to bring the benefits of God’s kingship to bear on the world around us... a taste of heaven right here on earth!    
 
The church was registered as a charity in 1984.  The King's Church trust (Charity number: 515329) operated until 2015.  In 2015, King's Church trust evolved into a Charitable Incorporated Organisation (Charity number: 1160234) as King's Church Loughborough - the aims and focus of the charity remained the same. 
 
 
    
GIVING
The Joy of Giving
 
At King’s Church we teach the biblical principle of stewardship. We believe that everything we have belongs to God and we are only looking after, or are stewards of, what He has given us. It is with this in mind that we encourage people who call King’s Church their family to give regularly and generously. It takes resources to fulfill all that God has given us to do.
 
It is our practice to take an offering at every Sunday morning gathering. However, many give directly from their bank account by a regular standing order. Giving in this way means that those who have responsibility for looking after the finances at King’s Church have the benefit of knowing that an assured amount will be available each month.

As mentioned above, we ask all those who are part of the King’s Church family to prayerfully consider the amount that they give regularly - and to review that sum as their situation changes. Responsible, joyful giving is one of the marks of a follower of Christ!
 
How can I give?
