What is Eyres Monsell?
Eyres Monsell is a council estate of around 12,000 people in the South of Leicester. It’s predominantly white, and a mixture of private and social housing. It’s in the top 10% of deprived estates in the UK, with high levels of poverty, crime, drug and alcohol addiction and increasing prostitution. There are 2 primary schools on the estate, along with 3 pubs, a few bookies, takeaways and co-ops - but no active gospel outreach in the estate itself.
