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

Lunch and Charity Sale on Saturday 8th November from noon until about 3 pm. Instead of an autumn fair, this year there will be stalls set up for various charities supported by the church. Lunches will be served until about 1.30 and refreshments until the sale closes.

Commemoration to mark the 100 year anniversary of the start of WW1 on Sunday 16th November from 12 noon until 3 pm. We hope to arrange a community lunch, display of memorabilia and singing songs from the time. All welcome (more details later).

Operation Christmas Child. Christchurch will once again be a drop-off centre in November for receiving filled shoeboxes to be sent to underpriviledged children in poor countries overseas. More details…
