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.
