Welcome to St. Leodegar’s Church

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.

The Church of England, via the Bishop, have informed us that churches can be opened for funerals under approved social distancing and limited numbers from 13th June 2020. In addition churches can also be opened for individual prayer under social distancing etc. 
Opening times:
St Leodegar: Saturdays 1pm – 4pm from 
St Stephens: Wednesday and Sunday afternoons also 1pm – 4pm (from Sunday 21st June)

Virtual Morning Praise – Sunday 5th July 2020
