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.

THE CHURCH AND COVID-19:
Unfortunately we are currently not allowed to hold Sunday services in church buildings at the moment,
but the church itself is very much alive, active and OPEN:
November 2020 - We have a weekly online service, midweek thought – and more! (See the links below)
December 2020 - We have a mixture of online services and worship in all our churches for December - go to your church's page to see what is on offer.
Because of the current situation and the sheer numbers that attend some of our Christmas Services, we have already decided to hold an online Carol Service on December 20th at 4pm and an online Christingle on Christmas Eve at 4pm. These will be on our youtube channel – watch for details
Look at the links below to see how you can continue to take part and worship from your home:
Online resources are also available from the websites of the Diocese of Leicester and of the Church of England
PLUS a free phone line for daily hymns and prayers, perhaps tp pass to those not online - info here
SAFEGUARDING - If you have a safeguarding concern, please contact our Safeguarding team or the Rector. If you wish to speak to the Diocesan Safeguarding Team, or to someone outside the church, their contact details are available here.
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.
