March 1st is The World Day of Prayer and this year we shall be hosting a service at St Leonard’s Church at 2pm on Friday 1st March. The service has been written by the women of Palestine so what they have to say to us will be both relevant and interesting at this time. Do come along – the service is open to everyone.

Our services vary in style and content and you can find more information about this under the worship tab on the menu.
