For Your Diary.

WELCOME TO ST MARY’S CHURCH, EAST LEAKE.

St Mary’s is a friendly Anglican church situated in the heart of East Leake, where we are trying to make the Good News of Jesus known to all. Each Sunday we have two main services: 9:15am: Traditional Anglican Communion with hymns and a choir. This friendly service of village worship has a prayerful focus on the Eucharist, Bible teaching which is short but meaningful, and hymns to inspire. On the fourth Sunday of the month we use the beautiful language of the original prayer book. 10:30am: Contemporary Morning Worship. The service starts with tea and coffee. There’s an area for toddlers to play and a children’s group during the service. Worship gets underway around 10:45am. The Bible teaching is vibrant, faithful and relevant to life today. There’s an opportunity to be prayed for at the end of the service. Holy Communion is celebrated on the fourth Sunday of the month. People at St Mary’s are from a range of ages and backgrounds, and whether you’re a lifelong worshipper or are just curious about faith, we’d love to welcome you. Throughout the week, there is lots going on with home groups, youth work, a coffee morning and much more. Why not check out what’s happening this month and come along? The church is open every day so do drop in, enjoy the beautiful building, and be open to encountering the living God.
