We are a group of five church communities within the Diocese of Leicester who are seeking to be shaped by God. Worship and service are at the heart of what we are and what we do. Our aim is to build a caring community where the Father, Son and Holy Spirit are loved, worshipped and shared with everyone.
The churches of the benefice organise a variety of regular and one-off events for social, spiritual, educational, artistic and fundraising purposes. To find out about recent and planned events please follow this link.

A wedding is a great time for celebration. More than a quarter of all weddings in England take place in the setting of a Church of England parish church. Find out more about getting married in one of our churches.
A funeral marks the end of a human life on earth. It is an opportunity for friends and family to express their sense of grief and loss, to give thanks for the life that has ended and to commend that person to God’s safe-keeping. Find out more about how we can help.
Baptism (also known as christening) is the sign of a decision to follow Jesus in the journey of faith. By doing so, the person being baptised joins God’s community, the church. Parents often bring young children to be baptised, but young people and adults of any age can also be baptised. Find out more about baptism for yourself or for your child.
