SOAR Project was established by Keith Munro in 1996. Its primary purpose is evangelism and an important part of its mission strategy is engaging with churches and local schools.

SOAR has 2 workers: Keith Munro and Chris Lewney. Keith works with Key Stages 1 to 5 and Chris works with lunchtime and after school groups with Key Stages 3 to 5. Between them and some willing volunteers they come into contact with hundreds if not thousands of children and young people each week.

We are committed to working in partnership with local churches, sometimes individually, but more in local mission partnerships. We are passionate for people to know Jesus Christ and become his disciples.

Keith and Chris are part of the Loughborough Churches Partnership Exec. and as Soar we are passionate about spreading the Good News in Loughborough and the surrounding area in partnership with the local church.

Chris works mainly with young people, this important works is also primarily in partnership with the churches town-wide youth partnership, which is increasingly engaging church youth groups from the surrounding area.

SOAR is supported by a dedicated group of trustees from various churches in Loughborough and this part of the Soar Valley. If you’re interested in joining us, email
