Welcome to St. Leodegar’s Church

It is with much sadness that we have to announce that we are cancelling all church services and events for the foreseeable future.

The UK government and the Church of England have introduced many new measures to curb the spread of the COVID-19 or coronavirus, including cancelling church services and events.

Virtual All Age Worship No.10 – Sunday 30th May 2020
Alistair Ghinn has also put together a YouTube video playlist in which he hosts an All Age Worship Service. It is well worth watching! It is followed by other resources that may be helpful for the time that we are housebound.
Here’s the YouTube link for our All Age Service service and supporting worksheets:

We do hope it’s a great help and encouragement for you in these extraordinary circumstances. Feel free to forward it on to anyone else. 

I’m including on our ‘SUPPORTS’ section of the YouTube playlist, a fun weekly video release that my son Nathan has created for the youth of St Mary’s Fetcham where he’s their youth worker.  Feel free to send either Nathan or me any results from the fun challenges he sets.   

Plus here’s the excellently Scouts website with over 100 great indoor activites.
