About Us

St Leonard's is a community Church and we are known for our welcome, good hospitality and friendliness.  The Church is open each day except Wednesday, Friday and Sunday for Morning Prayer at 9am and the Church normally continues to be available and coffee and tea are served Monday to Saturday until 11.30am.  

At the centre of our life is our Parish Communion on 1st, 2nd, 4th & 5th Sundays at 10am.  We use Common Worship sung to several different settings led by the choir.  On Wednesdays there is a  service of Holy Communion at 9.30am.  On the 3rd Sunday of each month there is a Holy Communion service at 9am. Also on the 3rd Sunday at 9.30am Coffee and Croisants are served with activities for children to enjoy this is followed at 10am by Third Sunday Service with Thanksgiving for the Gift of a Child.  Morning Prayer is normally said on Mnday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday at 9am.  Evening Prayer is normally said on Monday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday.Other services take place as advertised.  A particularly large number of baptisms, weddings and funerals take place in Church, signifying the sense of attachment to the Church which many local people feel. 

Church members are involved in schools and in many community groups in Dinnington promoting the links between the community and the church.

The Church building dates from about 1897 and was enlarged in 1906, although there has been a church on this site since 1147.   Of particular interest are the Kempe windows in the North Aisle.  A narthex was created in 1985 and is separated by the Miners' Memorial Screen which commemorates those who died at Dinnington Main Colliery prior to its closure in 1991.
