About Us


Our vision is the Kingdom of God. Shaped by God, we seek the growth of his Kingdom in the depth of our discipleship, the number of new disciples and in our loving service of the world. We are a family of more than 18,000 Christians who worship in church buildings, houses, community spaces and schools. 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, taking in villages, market towns and the city of Leicester, we often describe ourselves as a rural diocese with urban heartlands.

Our offices are based in the gardens next to Leicester Cathedral in the St Martins House conference centre, alongside Cafe No:7 and Christian Resources bookshop. Our neighbours in Cathedral Gardens include our new monastic Community of the Tree of Life as well as St Martins Lodge luxury accommodation, profits from which contribute to our clergy stipends and pensions.
