The ancient and attractive parish church of St Helen’s – set at the heart of the delightful market town of Ashby de la Zouch, is a place to draw you in! You may wish to explore its wonderful history and its splendid, and somewhat quirky, interior (excellent 'Church Guides' are available near the entrance), or to sit quietly to rest and reflect, or to join us at services throughout the week and at our many fellowship and community events. The church is open to all every day from 9am until 5pm.

St Helen’s is run by a team of ordained clergy and talented volunteers – dedicated to our church motto: ‘To Know Christ, And to Make Him Known’. We seek to take what Jesus said seriously, and we want others to know God’s love for them. He loves us in spite of our failings! No wonder our mission is not only to nurture (or – build up) those who follow Him, but also to bring back those who once knew God, as well as to share the good news with those who have never known Him.

We value “tradition” and the gift of music – our main Sunday service and our monthly Choral Evensong service is led by a robed choir and organ. And we enjoy “variety” - a contemporary music group leads our more informal Family Services and times of evening worship.  Our “worship style” is intentionally varied – but it is rooted in Scripture and focused on our Saviour. 

Applying the teachings of Jesus to our lives in such complicated times, is a challenge.  That is why we seek to keep Prayer at the heart of all we seek to do.  We pray regularly for our troubled world, our country and its leaders, for the church, for our town and for individuals.  We are grateful for the strong relationships with the other churches in our town and the partnership across the seven parishes that make up our “Team Ministry”.   We are also linked with other charities and mission groups – locally, nationally, internationally (look at the web pages: “In the Town” and “In the World”).  Three key local partners are: Ashby Street Pastors, Christians Against Poverty and Ashby Youth for Christ.

Fellowship and Friendship are important to us: We pray together and we play together; we arrange flowers together, ring bells, eat meals (including haggis!), barn dance, sing, play skittles and thoroughly enjoy being part of a church ‘family’.

Whatever brings you to St Helen’s, we pray that you will feel the warmth, joy and peace that Jesus Christ brings.  And remember – we are here for you!
