Students always receive a warm welcome to the church! Over the years many students have found OEFC to be a kind of home away from home.
The church hall is well positioned for many students, being a short walk from the University of Leicester Oadby halls of residence and we also offer lifts when needed. A student lunch is also provided after every Sunday morning service during term time providing a great time to get to know one another.
We encourage any students who are willing, to get involved in the church whether it be in the youth work, as musicians or in any other way. We are also very supportive of Universities and Colleges Christian Fellowship (UCCF) and aim to encourage students who are involved in the Christian Unions at De Montfort University (DMUCU) and Leicester University (LUCU).
