Christchurch is a local Christian community mainly serving Clarendon Park and surrounding areas in Leicester. We aim to be inclusive, non-judgmental and supportive of everyone who finds a home with us and warm and welcoming to anyone who comes to visit. Our worship and activities are diverse and varied, and tend to change quite frequently. Services take on a wide variety of forms, from the hymn-sandwich to café-style and there are many weekday activities, including discussion groups, weekday prayer meeting, art group, luncheon club, parents and toddlers… There is a wide range of ages and backgrounds in the church.
If you have come to Leicester to study and are living in Clarendon Park, we are right on your doorstep and would love to see you.
Keep Up! sessions
Don’t get left behind with laptops, smartphones, tablets or the internet. The Wild Honey Keep Up! project helps Clarendon Park residents gain confidence and get connected with electronic gadgets.
Anyone can turn up. The sessions are run by friendly volunteers and are free. We talk with you about the particular issues you’re having and offer practical advice. If it helps, we’ll sit with you as you practice. We know it takes time to learn, so we usually have the kettle on.
What kinds of things can we help you with? Here’s a sample:
- I have a new smartphone and I don’t know how to use it.
- I want to move photographs from my phone onto my computer
- Help, it’s all changed! Where have my files gone?
- I’ve never used email before.
- What do I need in order to Skype with my family?
The sessions are held at Christchurch on Wednesday evenings from 6.30 to 8 pm, from 25th January to 15th March. If you need help with your own device bring it along, or use one of the Wild Honey laptops.
We also welcome new volunteers to provide the advice.
