We are the Church of England Diocese of Leicester. Our vision is the Kingdom of God.

We are a family of more than 18,000 Christians who worship in church buildings, houses and schools, as well as community and outdoor spaces. We believe in encouraging every Christian to live out their faith in everyday life, as they pray, tell others about God, and demonstrate God’s love for the world in their actions. With over 320 churches, 234 parishes, almost 100 schools and academy trusts, and a rapidly growing number of fresh expressions of Church, we are proud to be a rural diocese with urban heartlands.
