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.

Ground up

Ground up is our café church, usually held on the second Sunday evening each month (dates). This has now been moved from its former venue in Costa Coffee to our own church premises. It takes the form of a discussion, often introduced with a video, a game, a quiz or something else light-hearted. No theology required! Free cakes and refreshments are provided to get the evening going. We gather about 6.15 and finish at about 7.30.
