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.
Checkpoint to visit the Tuesday Group
An advisor from the support charity Checkpoint will be coming to Wild Honey’s Tuesday Group on Tuesday afternoons from August 16 to September 27 (except August 30). Anyone needing help with a problem concerning welfare benefits, housing or debt is welcome to come along to one of these sessions for a one-to-one discussion, between 1.45 and 3.30 pm.

Ride and Stride
Ride and Stride is an annual churches open day. Most churches and chapels will be open to visitors on Saturday 10th September. The idea is to visit as many as possible, walking, cycling, jogging, riding… Participants can be sponsored, with the proceeds shared between the Leicestershire Historic Churches Trust and a church chosen by the participant (Christchurch, we hope!) More information on the Ride and Stride website, www.rideandstrideuk.org.
