Open Air Service in Thurnby
Quite a few of our churches across the Diocese of Leicester have been taking advantage of the last days of summer sun to hold services and gatherings outdoors in recent weeks. As a safer approach to getting together once again in bigger groups, the fresh air and clement weather has been quite the tonic for sharing the word of God with church congregations and the wider community. Over in Thurnby, St Luke’s Church brought together more than 125 people in an open air Sunday service on Manor Park earlier this month.

New church plant formed during lockdown starts weekly services
The last eighteen months haven't been easy for any of our churches. We've faced new challenges and learnt new skills, and now many of us are far more adept at Zoom or taking church online than we'd ever have thought we would be. Most of us have found that it's been hard enough to sustain what already exists, so imagine what it must be like to try and launch a brand new church during a pandemic. That's what The Beacon in Hinckley have done.
