People have worshipped in St Leonard's Church for centuries, and today we still have a lively worshipping community.

  • Everybody is welcome to our services. Whether you're a believer, a non-believer or would just like to know more, we'd love you to come along.
  • We organise a range of different services, including both traditional and non-traditional, so we hope we offer something for everyone.
  • We hope we're warm, friendly and inclusive.

In this parish we are fortunate in having a priest to celebrate Holy Communion on three Sundays of every month.  On each fourth Sunday, we gather for worship, normally without a priest, and the form of worship is devised and led by members of the congregation.   We seek to worship God in a manner that is open to all, irrespective of creed, and we warmly welcome those who are exploring. Each service has a different theme that is relevant to our community.

Because these gatherings are put together by individuals, they vary widely in form and content. But all are intended to be inclusive, informal, uplifting and enjoyable. Do come and join us and see what you think.

Sunday 2nd April: 9.30 Holy Communion at Croft
