About us

What do we do?

SOaR is primarily an evangelistic organisation:

Schools: Taking lessons, assemblies and leading Christian Unions. Wherever possible we work with the local churches and help them develop their own school ministries.

Outreach: As an evangelistic organisation we partner the local church in reaching their community with the gospel. SOaR specialises in mission to children, young people and families.

and Resources: Offering a range of published resources for churches to browse as well as using our own materials, SOaR engages with the local missional partnerships that have developed in recent years which has led to a network of people with different gifts, skills, ministries and abilities. We also offer training and teaching in schools work, children/youth work and engaging in mission to our 21st Century society.

Our story

SOaR 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 is part of the Loughborough Churches Partnership Exec. and is passionate about spreading the Good News in Loughborough and the surrounding area.

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 office@soarproject.org.uk.
