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.
We are pleased to confirm that Revd Andrew Smith officially became Rector of this benefice following the Service of Institution and Induction on Monday 21st September.
THE CHURCH AND COVID-19
THE REALLY GOOD NEWS IS: that we are now holding church services in the churches in our Benefice.
A full risk assessment has been carried out by the church wardens and approved by the area dean and precautions are in place, varying at each venue. Please go to the page for your church to see details for service etc.
Please wear facemasks. If that’s not possible, please contact your church warden in advance if possible.
We would like to welcome Andrew and his family!
As the attendee numbers were severely restricted, due to C-19, a video of the service will shortly be 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.
