Christchurch is located at 105a Clarendon Park Road, Leicester, LE2 3AH.


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.

The church is a Methodist and Baptist ecumenical partnership formed about 20 years ago when the local Baptist and Methodist churches came together, but in the main we operate simply as a local church. We are fortunate in having a very good suite of premises which are used extensively by the local community as well as by the church. Come along and give us a go.

Forthcoming events

There will be a service at South Wigston Methodist Church on Friday 5th September at 7.00 pm to welcome two new ministers to the circuit, Revs Fran Rhys and David Willis. The preacher at this service will be the Chair of District, Rev Peter Hancock.

The annual Ride and Stride event is on Saturday 13th September this year. After nearly 25 years Leicestershire Ride+Stride continues to be a valuable fund-raiser for the City & County’s Christian Churches, Chapels and Meeting Houses, raising around £40,000 annually.  The money is divided half and half between the participating places of worship and the County’s Historic Churches Trust which awards repair grants to historic churches. If you are taking part, Christchurch will be open to welcome you. Find out more on the Ride and Stride website.
