Welcome to the website of the Mountsorrel Churches of Christ Church and St Peter’s. I hope you find all the information you are looking for.
This weekend sees the Coronation of King Charles III and we will be commemorating this in our Sunday services. If you can join us, you’d be most welcome. St Peter’s has a traditional service of Morning Prayer (Matins) at 9.30am and Christ Church has a service of Holy Communion beginning at 11am.
Later in the afternoon (at 4pm), there will be Fun@4 and Youth@4 which will be celebrating the coronation with special activities and afternoon tea. Everyone is welcome to join us.
Every blessing to you, Colin Resch
Hello and welcome to our website – the place to find all the information you need about both Christ Church and St Peter’s Church Mountsorrel. Enjoy browsing our site and do let us know if there’s something you want to know but couldn’t find.
Also, why not join with us in worship this coming weekend. Things are slightly different this weekend because there are no morning services in either of our Church buildings. Instead, we join together with the other Churches in Mountsorrel for a special ‘Churches Together’ service which will take place at 10.30am in Mountsorrel Baptist Church at the bottom of The Green. We’d love to see you there if you can make it.
On the evening of Sunday 30 April, we will gather for a service of Evening Prayer, also known as Evensong, at St Peter’s Church from 6pm. This is a traditional service using words from the Book of Common Prayer. If you’ve never been to this service before, you would be especially welcome to join us and discover the delights of Evensong. Do introduce yourself to one of our welcome team when you arrive and they will make sure that you have everything you need to get the most out of your time with us.
We’re glad you’ve found our website. Here you can get to know us a little bit better and discover all the good things we have planned. But we’d love to get to know you better too, so please accept this invitation to join us for worship this coming weekend.
This Sunday, 23rd April, we have two opportunities for you to join with us, first a service of Holy Communion beginning at 9.30am and suitable for people of all ages at St Peter’s Church on Market Place; secondly a service of Morning Prayer beginning at 11am in Christ Church (top of The Green). The service at Christ Church will be followed by our Annual Meeting, but please don’t let that put you off, you can always slip away quietly after coffee before the meeting begins.
If it’s your first time with us, please make yourself known to one of our welcome team and they will make sure that you have everything you need to get the most out of your time with us. It doesn’t matter if you’ve never been to Church before or if you’ve not been for quite some time – you will be assured of a warm welcome.
We’re so glad you found our website. Now we’d love to meet you. Why not come and join us at on of our services this coming weekend – you will be assured of a warm welcome.
On Saturday 15th April, we’ve got our Muddy Church in the Orchard behind Christ Church. This begins at 4pm and takes place outdoors around a fire. There’s activities for youngsters and the chance to sit and enjoy the fire whilst toasting marshmallows. It’s Church, but not as you know it.
On Sunday 16th April, we’ve got a service of Holy Communion with prayers for healing at Christ Church from 11am. On Sunday evening, beginning at 6pm, you are invited to St Peter’s for a traditional service of Evening Prayer (also known as Evensong) led by Revd Colin Resch. The evening service at St Peter’s will be followed by the Church’s Annual Meeting – but don’t let that put you off, you can always slip away after coffee before the meeting begins.
Hi and welcome to our website. Here you can find all the information you need about our Church community here in Mountsorrel. We’d love to invite you to be a part of our Church family.
It is Easter Day this Sunday and we will be marking this in both of our Churches with services to which you and your friends and family are invited. At 9.30am, Revd Eric Whitley will be at St Peter’s Church to lead the service there. The words for the service will be taken from the Book of Common Prayer. Then, at 11am we welcome Bishop Saju, Bishop of Loughborough to lead us in our Easter Morning service at Christ Church that will include baptisms (some by full-immersion) and confirmations. This will be a joyous occasion and we would like to extend an invitation to you.
Please do join us if you can. May you know God’s blessing upon you this Easter.
We have many services, events and activities going on this week as we journey through Holy Week and on towards our Easter celebrations. Please do take a look at our calendar to see all that we have planned.
I would particularly like to draw your attention to our Good Friday events with a service for all the family at 10am and a more contemplative service of prayers, readings and silence at 2pm. Both of these taking place at St Peter’s Church. I would encourage you to come along to either or both of these services.
I would also like to draw your attention to a very special Easter Celebration taking place at Christ Church on Easter Sunday when we welcome Bishop Saju, bishop of Loughborough to lead us in our Easter Morning service that will include baptisms (some by full-immersion) and confirmations. This will be a joyous occasion and we would like to extend our invitation to you. Please do join us if you can.
We are now in a period that the Church refers to as Passiontide. Easter is drawing near and we begin to focus on the journey that Jesus took towards the Cross. This coming Sunday is Palm Sunday and on this day we think about the journey that Jesus made into Jerusalem – not like some great king or conquering emperor coming on a state visit – more subdued, humble, lowly, riding on a donkey. Still his disciples and the crowd rallied around him welcoming him by waving palm branches and shouting, ‘Hosanna!’
Join us for our services this Palm Sunday to journey back in time and travel, with Jesus, the road to Jerusalem. There will be services of Holy Communion in both of our Churches on Sunday 2nd April: 9.30am at St Peter’s Church, and 11am at Christ Church.
At 4pm, we will have our regular ‘Fun@4’ at Christ Church with activities for all the family and a separate stream for youth.
We’d love to see you at any or all of these services as we journey with Jesus towards our Easter celebrations. God bless.
We’re so glad you found our website and we’d love to meet with you face to face. You can join us at any of our events and services that are coming up (full details can be found in the calendar on this site).
This week, we have our daily Morning Prayer at 9am each weekday, but we also have a special service on Saturday 25th March to celebrate The Annunciation – the day when the Church remembers the visit of the Angel Gabriel to the Virgin Mary telling her that she would be having a baby. This will be a service of Holy Communion at St Peter’s Church beginning at 10am. The service will be followed by refreshments so that we can continue to share fellowship together afterwards.
The following day, Sunday 26th March will see a service of All Age Communion taking place at St Peter’s Church starting at 9.30am and a service of Morning Prayer at Christ Church which begins at 11am.
Hope to see you there, but don’t forget to put your clocks forward or you’ll be late for these Sunday services.
We’d love to welcome you to join us for worship this coming weekend. And there’s plenty of opportunity.
On Saturday 18th March, starting at 4pm, we have our Muddy Church session which is open to all and takes place in the Orchard behind Christ Church. The whole thing takes place outdoors with activities around the fire – do come appropriately dressed for the weather. Sadly we’ve had to cancel this session of Muddy Church. The next Muddy Church will be 15 April.
On Sunday 19th March we have a relaxed service of Cafe Church at 11am in Christ Church for Mothering Sunday. You will be welcome to drop in for as short or as long a time as you wish. The whole service will probably be finished by about midday so there’s still time if you’re going out for lunch.
Later that evening there will be a service of Evening Prayer (Evensong) taking place at St Peter’s Church which begins at 6pm.
There’s no need to tell us you are coming, just turn up. If it’s your first time with us, please make yourself known to one of our welcome team and we will make sure you have everything you need to get the most out of your time with us.
Welcome to our website. We hope you will enjoy browsing our site and find all the information you are looking for.
We’d like to extend a special invitation to you to join us for worship this coming weekend.
