Licensing at St Peter’s signals new season of mission for Oadby church
Yesterday saw Jon Tearne and Sami Lindsey licensed to St Peter’s, Oadby as part of an exciting plan to revitalise the church’s mission and ministry there. The vision is to continue to build on St Peter’s well established and valued civic role and to become more intentionally mission focussed, with a particular emphasis on engaging with children, young people, families, and young adults.

Here’s a great project that Holy Trinity Leicester, one of our diocesan Resourcing Churches, are offering as a resource that can be used by any church in the diocese who would find it helpful.

Highlights from online holiday club
Last week saw 134 children from 26 churches and 14 with no expressed church connection, participate in His Majesty’s Secret Spies Online Holiday Club, a partnership between the Diocese of Leicester and Holy Trinity Church Leicester. The club featured two parts with a live stream, complete with video stories, craft and spy fitness, followed by Zoom groups. It is fair to say that there were moments of unintentional drama behind the scenes but there was also plenty of evidence of God at work and children and leaders having fun and connecting with others.
