Welcome to St Leonard's, Wollaton
We are a Christian community that offers a warm welcome to all, whatever age or stage of faith you are at. We aim to encourage everyone who joins us to discover that being a follower of Jesus Christ is the most wonderfully fulfilling way to live a life transformed with hope and purpose.
Christians have been worshipping at St Leonard’s since the early 13th century; witnessing down the centuries to God’s love for his world. If you're interested, you can find out more about the history of St Leonard's. We would love to see you become a part of this living history and join us as we learn together how to play our part in God’s purposes in the 21st century.
You will find us on Wollaton Road just up the road from Wollaton Park, adjacent to The Admiral Rodney pub - Find Us

Christmas in Wollaton
This year we will be unable to hold "Carols round the Pump" in the normal way BUT we are hoping that many will join together for "Carols round the Community" on Sunday 20th December at 6.30pm. Wollaton Churches will be streaming "Carols round the Community" and invite you to gather outside your homes, perhaps co-ordinating with others in your road, to join in singing some carols together.
We are also encouraging households or perhaps streets/roads to consider putting up a nativity scene in front windows, gardens or porches and then let us know what you have set up, and where, by sending a photo to firstname.lastname@example.org. We will then put together a "Nativity Trail" map which we hope many in the community might use to walk around Wollaton and enjoy looking at what has been set up as part of preparing for celebrating Christmas.
There will be Nativity scenes outside and inside St Leonard's. Families may like to come along with children in costume, and take a photo in front of the scenes.
Wollaton Churches will be holding other services. Please keep checking the church websites and look out for further information as we draw closer to Christmas.
