Harvest City Church

We’re a Bible-based church; led by the Word and open to the Holy Spirit.

We were created for a purpose: to give glory to God through worship.

We exist to give people an opportunity to hear the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

We are a family. We build church by building relationships.

Harvest City Church is a bold, vibrant church in the heart of Leicester, reaching out to people of all ages and nations.

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. 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.

Life Groups

Each month we meet around Leicester to have some fun! This is a time of fellowship, a time to share with one another and a time to build each other up. There is always food to be had too!

Find your local group on the map and drop us a line if you’d like to join. It’s a great way to build relationships.

Groups and Events
The Pulse – Harvest City Church Leicester

The Pulse is more than just a place for students and young adults to come and have fun. It is a lifestyle that seeks genuine, long-lasting, meaningful relationships.

We encourage discussions that are challenging and eye-opening. We aim to make every experience life-changing for the better through the gospel of Jesus Christ. We are not here to simply exist, but we want to make a difference in our own lives, our families, communities, our city and ultimately the world.


Ignite Youth Group – Harvest City Church Leicester

Every Friday 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!

7-9pm at St John’s (6pm for Hangtime) | Ages 11–15

Junior Church – Harvest City Church Leicester

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.

Our classes are positive and faith-filled with facilities that are colourful and child-friendly. Our trained and DBS/CRB-checked volunteer team bring an attitude of joy and impart life to children at every age.

More details: Junior Church (JC).


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 will 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.

Shine Ladies' Group – Harvest City Church Leicester

Our Shine women’s group is about fun, friendship and deepening our faith. It’s about women experiencing a life-changing relationship with God, and shining to be who He has called them to be.

We meet regularly for a range of relaxed, friendly events. Please take some time out to join us, it would be great to see you!

New Horizons

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.


DARE (Defying Age-Related Expectations) 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, 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!

Cafe Mama

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.

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!

Medic's Corner – Harvest City Church Leicester

Being a medical student or doctor is a challenging occupation. It often presents intellectual and emotional challenges as well as moral dilemmas. It can be lonely at times, but if God has given you the vocation it can be the best career in the world.

Medic’s Corner supports medical students and practicing doctors in various specialties and at all stages of their careers, providing encouragement and help in reaching all that God has planned for them. We aim to bring everyone together to share experiences, encourage each other, provide practical support and have some fun along the way.
