At Harvest City Church everyone is welcome, but you can’t always be a visitor! We want to build relationships, not acquaintances. If you see Harvest City Church as your home then we encourage you to go through our Partnership Class and become a Partner in the church.
Partnership is our chance to get to know each other and for you to pick up our pastor’s heart and vision for the church. If you’re interested in Partnership, check our our Partnership page and sign up for a class.
Don't miss your chance, sign up for this year's class now!
Harvest Groups are great part of life at HCC. Each month we meet up at a number of different houses across Leicester and have some fun. This is a time to fellowship, a time to share with one another and a time to build each other up. There is always food to be had too!
If you’re not part of a Harvest Group yet but would like to be, have a look on the map and find out where your local group is meeting. To join a Harvest Group, please drop us a line. It’s a great way to build relationships!
Get in touch and we'll place you in one of our small groups.
Based on the principle in Deuteronomy 28:13 that men should be “the head and not the tail”, Excel aims to push the men of Harvest City Church onto the next level of faith so they can achieve all that God has in store for them.
The main focus of Excel is on relationships. There are be meals, days out and plenty of opportunities to just get together with like-minded guys and chill out. Excel is a great opportunity to invite your friends to church where they can see what Jesus has done for us.
Beautify is all about getting together as girls and having some fun, developing friendships and glorifying God! There will be a range of different meetings and events, so check back regularly to find out what’s going on.
Beautify events are relaxed and laid back so they are perfect opportunities to invite some friends and bring them to church without the sometimes overwhelming experience of a Sunday service.
Every Saturday night young people at iGnite meet up to take ownership of their faith. With exciting worship, crazy games and a powerful message from the Bible you can be sure you’ll leave with a brand new spark in your life.
Each week is different and might include bowling, ‘big days out’ or a giant table tennis game thrown in. You’ll have a great time that’s for sure!
Young Professionals (YPs) is a vibrant, cheerful and lively group of guys and girls between the ages of 16 and 30 with a similar goal in mind: keeping Christ in the centre!
YPs is not only a youth group where young people meet together to learn about Jesus, but one where they can build strong, lasting relationships and become part of the Harvest City Church family. We aim to equip, provoke and challenge you to better yourself and become part of something great in the Kingdom of God.

In Junior Church we help children to build personal relationships with Father God, Jesus and the Holy Spirit through understanding, exploring and applying the Bible in a relevant, child-friendly way.

ThirtyForty is a purely social group which meets at different restaurants for a relaxed evening out. There is no teaching, preaching, singing or service; just good fellowship which will help you to build relationships with people in exactly the same situation as you.
This is a group for those in their thirties and forties (see what we did there?), single, married or other. We’re not big fans of restrictions so if you’re a few years off one way or the other you’re more than welcome too!
New Horizons is about living life to the full, and our busy social calendar of meals, walks, talks and days-out encourages strong bonds of friendship through fellowship that will not end once you walk out of the church doors.
We aim to draw together the mature amongst us (over 50s) and provide a focal point for more specific and relevant teaching, drawing on the wisdom and experience that only a life-long Christian walk can forge.
Cafe Mama is a great place to meet other mums with small children for fellowship and fun.
Looking after young children is great, but it can be hard work! Cafe Mama is a place to meet other mums and relax with a cup of tea and treats whilst your child plays with friends in a fun and safe environment.
We meet every Thursday from 10am–12pm at St John’s.
You’re guaranteed a warm and friendly welcome and you’ll soon feel right at home amongst friends. Why not give us a try? We look forward to meeting you!
As a Church, we always try to reflect the love of Jesus in the way we love our city. We collect and pack boxes of food and goodies and hand them out to those that need them most. The parcels that have gone out have served to bless the people receiving them and the givers alike.
Acts 20:35 says ‘It is more blessed to give than to receive’, so we encourage everyone to get behind AoK and get involved!
City Business is a business development and networking group within Harvest City Church. We run seminars with church leaders and local businessmen to help you to build and expand your business with a strong Biblical foundation.

Firewall is a series of workshops for parents of children of all ages who want to learn what they can do to help their children navigate the world of technology in a godly way.
Run by Tate (YPs leader and Apple fanboy) and Darrell (HCC’s resident staff geek and new father), Firewall aims to arm parents with the knowledge they need to provide direction and protection in the confusing and fast-changing digital world.
In a church with as many partners as Harvest City Church it’s just not possible for our Pastors to physically be there for everybody in their time of need. But they don’t need to be because we have the Care Team.
The Care Team (along with all the leaders in the church) carries exactly the same spiritual authority as our Pastors: they are people who’ve been called to represent the church to those in need. They carry the heart and spirit of the Pastors and the church and are ready to serve partners who are going through tough times.
Connect is a series of groups organised for people with similar interests running during the warmer months from April to September at various venues across the city. We believe that the best way to build a church is to build relationships, so Connect is a great opportunity to get involved, meet new people, make new friends and see old ones too.
You can come to as many groups as you like – don’t feel you have to choose just one. There is plenty of opportunity to get involved.
The Creative Arts team provides entertainment and enlightenment in equal measure. We are a diverse group in both age and race who share a passion for spreading God’s Word through speech, song, dance and drama. It is our mission to reach people in new, unusual and interesting ways, using our performance skills to break down barriers that might exist between Christians and non-believers, allowing a free flow of the Gospel.
There's a group for everyone, once you've found yours, get along!
