We’re very sorry that this church continues to be closed at the moment. We would dearly like to reopen for small services, however, we must complete Risk Assessments and comply with strict guidelines before we are able to do so. We will endeavour to do this as quickly as we can.

In the meantime please be assured of our prayers for this community and if you are in pastoral need please contact:

A message from the Bishop of Leicester – The Rt. Revd Martyn Snow

While our church buildings have been closed, the church has still been alive and active. I am deeply grateful to the many volunteers who have regularly phoned people, helped with shopping and other practical support, organised online worship and prayed for those they know have been suffering during this pandemic. This is the heart of what the church is all about.

As our buildings re-open, we are once again reliant on volunteers to fulfil all the requirements around cleaning and other safety measures. Not all churches will be able to do this and so some will re-open sooner than others. This is completely understandable, and no one should feel under pressure to do anything which might put others at risk.

My sincere hope is that our communities will work together, continuing to focus on caring for one another and praying for one another.

The Rt. Revd Martyn Snow,

Bishop of Leicester
