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.

If you have come to Leicester to study and are living in Clarendon Park, we are right on your doorstep and would love to see you.

Community Barbecues

Our second Saturday barbecue this year will be on 16th June, from 12 noon till 2 pm in the church car park. If you’re shopping on Queen’s Road in the morning, pop in for a burger for your lunch!

Hot dogs, burgers and refreshments are all FREE. Also a bouncy castle and maybe a few other attractions.

Keep Up!

Got a new phone? Need help using it? Thinking about getting a tablet or phone, but not sure what they do?

We can help. Since summer 2015, Keep up! has helped people in Clarendon Park gain confidence with digital gadgets and practise the skills to use them.

Anyone can turn up. The sessions are run by friendly volunteers, some uni students. They are free. We’ll listen as you describe what you want to do, and then suggest how to do it. We’ll work with your own device, or we can show you on our range of tablets and laptops. We answer questions, and give you time to think. While we practise, we usually have the kettle on. And biscuits.

The sessions are held at Christchurch on Wednesday evenings from 6.30 to 8 pm. The new series runs from the 16th May to 13th June.

We also welcome new volunteers to provide the advice.

Keep Up! is run by the WildHoney project. More details about this are on their website at www.wildhoney.org.uk.
