About Us

At the centre, and the heart, of the village of Newtown Linford, the (All) Saints have been worshipping God here since before the time of Lady Jane Grey (who grew up in the neighbouring Bradgate House) and serving the community in his name.

The Parish of Newtown Linford is situated outside the North Western edge of Leicester within the National Forest boundary. It is within easy access of the M1 and M42 motorways and East Midlands airport. Birmingham International Airport is about 40 minutes away. The main entrance to Bradgate Park is at the heart of the village by the church. The park is a popular tourist attraction with one million visitors per year, and provides ample opportunity for exercise and recreation.

All Saints is very much part of this thriving and prosperous rural community. It is the only church in the village and welcomes people from all denominations as well as seeking to attract visitors. The village primary school regularly holds its special services for Easter, Christmas and Harvest Festival in the Church. Newtown Linford Choral Society has over 80 members and enjoys a very high reputation well beyond the confines of the village. The choir is led by one of the church organists and a number of members sing at services on the second or third Sunday in the month and at festivals.
