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.

Summer Saturday

wild honey logoSaturday 12th August from 10 am to 2 pm at Christchurch, the Wild Honey project is offering a variety of stalls with high quality hand-made crafts, bric-a-brac, fine art, books and plants. Coffee cakes and light lunches will be served and the Greenshoots ceilidh band will be playing. It’s not too early to be thinking about Christmas presents so drop in and see what you can find.

This event is to raise funds for the Wild Honey Project.

Summer Barbecues

Summer’s here and we are holding our popular community barbecues again this year. The first two were in May and June, when we gave out over 100 burgers and hot dogs and the final one will be on Saturday 16th September. Let’s hope the weather is as good as it was for the others!

The barbecues are in the church car park from 11 am to 1 pm. Hot dogs, burgers and refreshments are all FREE. Also a bouncy castle and maybe a few other attractions.
