Church of England Diocese of Blackburn Samlesbury Saint Leonard the Less

St Leonard the Less

Welcome to Samlesbury St Leonard the Less. A place of worship has stood on this site since the late 12th century and our beautiful historic building is quite unique. Despite our age and history we are a forward looking parish with an enthusiastic junior church and a great community feel. 

The parish of Samlesbury: St Leonard the Less is committed to the safeguarding of children, young people and adults. We follow the House of Bishops guidance and policies and have our own Parish Safeguarding Officer, PSO. The Diocese of Blackburn’s safeguarding pages contain vital links and information including contacts for the Diocesan Safeguarding Advisor (DSA) who advise our PSOs. If you are concerned that a child or adult has been harmed or may be at risk of harm please contact the DSA. If you have immediate concerns about the safety of someone, please contact the police and your local authority Children or Adults Services.
