Junction Church is a relatively new church gathering in the heart of Eastleigh.
We’re a community of people from all ages and backgrounds aiming to love and follow God with enthusiasm, build a church family that reflects who God is and serve our wider community. We believe that Jesus changes lives, that the message of the bible is as relevant today as it’s ever been and that God is both present and active in our lives through the Holy Spirit. We are a Commission church and also members of the Evangelical Alliance. We also work alongside many of the other local churches as part of Churches Together in Eastleigh as we serve our communities in a variety of ways.
We gather every Sunday in central Eastleigh to worship and hear the message of the bible explained. Our free coffee bar opens at 10am, our worship starts at 10.30am and we usually finish by 12.15pm. These meetings are informal and friendly and everyone is welcome, whatever their take on life. We sing modern Christian songs as well as older hymns and during our worship we expect to engage with God as a community.
There’s a play space where crèche aged babies can be taken care of and after our worship we run a range of children’s groups from 2 years 9 months up to Year 10. These are staffed by teams of volunteers who are all DBS checked. [See safeguarding policy]
On the first Sunday of most months we run a shorter meeting in the morning at the usual time (with no kids’ groups) and then Messy Church from 3.30pm.
Most weeks we gather within homes across the Borough in Connect Groups. These are friendly, informal groups which are at the heart of who we are. Within these groups we drink tea and coffee, discuss what it means to live in the light of what the bible teaches and support and pray for one another. Along with this we run regular courses, such as Alpha, for those within the church community and those outside.
Junction Church is funded by the generous giving of those who are a part of the church community. It’s our love for Jesus and our desire to serve the communities around us inspires us to invest financially in the local church. For more information on how to give please click here.
We believe leadership is essential for the spiritual health of the church community and the fulfilment of God’s mission.
Junction Church is currently led by Dave Lockyer who serves as an elder and is responsible for the overall direction and welfare of the church community. Alongside Dave there are a range of fantastic people who carry leadership responsibility within the life of the church as we go about our mission.
