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

Welcome

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

Saturday 8th August, the Wild Honey community project is having a fundraising fair at Christchurch from 10 am to 2 pm.
