Note: We are currently in the process of organising a full re-design of the website so it shows far more of who we are and what we’re about! I am very aware that this design does not represent us well! If you’re studying web design at uni, please get in touch 😀
“At Reach Leicester, we are passionate about reaching all different ages with the gospel and that includes students! We believe that students and young adults have the potential to breathe life into our communities and to the life of the church. We’d love to help support and grow a student ministry across Reach and the city.”
Hi – I’m George Buschbeck and I am the new student worker at Reach Leicester! My wife, Esther, and I are currently living in the south of Clarendon Park and are looking to connect and build relationships with students across Leicester. We are here to support you throughout your studies and offer a home away from home. We love board games, cooking meals, baking cakes, making ice-cream, going out for walks, music, whiskey (ok… that’s mostly just me). We also have the cutest little kitten in the world called Rory (picture below)
A little bit of history…
Reach Leicester had a core of students bringing a huge amount of life and passion to our church. A couple of years ago our student workers moved on to plant a new ministry and the last of our students have since graduated and moved away for work. This has left us with a gap in the our church community which we are praying God will fill with vibrant, new life! 🙂
Esther’s and my vision is to see student ministry grow again from the ground up! We are looking to invest in you, equip you and give you opportunities to get stuck in, allowing you to grow in who God has made you to be. If there’s something you feel that God has called you to and you’re passionate about, we want to equip you to succeed – whether that’s getting involved working with children, youth, wider student ministry, worship, international ministry, social justice issues, charity work or more!
We are praying for all students coming to Leicester that you will find the right church for you (if you’ve linked up on Student Linkup, we’re praying for you by name!) There are many great churches in Leicester, so we’re confident you’ll find a place to call home.
We hope you have an amazing and blessed time studying in Leicester – feel free to get in touch any time! We’d love to meet up for a chat over tea/coffee, dinner, pub trip etc. Transport is not an issue – we can pick up and drop off too 🙂
