Following the feedback given by our parish and those across the Diocese of Leicester, the Diocesan Synod will be meeting on Saturday 9 October to vote on the way forward. You can find out more about the proposals to be put to synod in this short vido presented by Bishop Martyn. I would ask you to pray for our synod members as they meet.
Who Are We?
An assortment of Christians from the Charnwood Forest area of Leicestershire. We are from a number of different church types (“Denominations”) though some have no particular Church affiliation. Some have been Christians for many years while others have just started to explore the teachings of Christ. Our meetings, which are informal, include prayer and study of the Bible with discussions about our faith and how it informs our daily lives.
We have no written constitution and no explicit geographical limits!
We meet at the Baptist Church, Woodhouse Eaves, the Methodist Church, Woodhouse Eaves and St Leonard’s Church, Swithland,
The Autumn Course runs from September 28th each Tuesday night the course will be Acts 13-28 “To the ends of the Earth!” By Christine Platt.
We welcome old and new members, so if you would like to join us please contact Gary Lee by email on firstname.lastname@example.org for further information.

It is clear that the Church in our Diocese will be facing massive changes in the not too distant future. The proposed models of ministry will, depending on your personality type, either fill you with trepidation and anxiety or excitement and adventure. Either way, as you discover more about the proposals, like me you will probably have many questions. Find out more about the Shaped by God Together local conversations on our SBGT page: stleonardsswithland.org/sbgt
