Welcome to St Leonard’s

Welcome to St Leonard’s! We’d love you to come and visit our church; you’d be very welcome – the website shows you what goes on – and here are some of the things you might want to know.

We try to follow the example that Jesus set of accepting everyone who came to him. So we try to be an inclusive church where anyone can feel welcome. We believe our church is not a private club – it’s open to, and for, everybody. It’s for those who have faith and those who don’t know if they have any, those who have made mistakes, those who are trying to make sense of life and those on whom everyone else has given up. We know we’re not perfect and we don’t expect you to be.
