This coming Sunday is Father’s Day and we will be marking this with a special Cafe Church service at Christ Church, 11am. Bacon rolls will be served to all and tea/coffee will be available throughout the service. Come and join us for this relaxed act of worship during which we will thank God, our heavenly Father, for the example of fatherhood he gives to us. We will thank him for the love our own fathers have shown to us; we will remember our own fathers who are no longer with us; we will pray for all those whose relationships with their own fathers was far from perfect and for whom this day is difficult.
On Sunday evening, we gather at St Peter’s Church, 6pm for a service of Evening Prayer (Evensong) using the traditional language of the Book of Common Prayer.
I do hope you will be able to come along to either of these services and I look forward to seeing you there. With every blessing, Colin Resch.

At Christ Church, 11am, there will be a service of All Age Worship suitable for the whole family. Tea and Coffee will be served throughout the service and there will be activities suitable for all ages. Later, at St Peter’s Church, 4pm, there will be our Senior Sunday service for the elderly (those age sixty plus) who live alone. This short twenty minute service will be followed by a sandwich tea with tea/coffee and cakes.

Have you ever wondered about the Trinity: One God, three persons – Father, Son, Holy Spirit? Sunday 4 June is Trinity Sunday. Come and join us for worship and all may be made clear.
Join us at St Peter’s Church, 9.30am for a service of Holy Communion led by Alison Prince. or at Christ Church, 11am for a service of Holy Communion led by me, Colin Resch.

Later, at 4pm, we will have our Fun@4 and Youth@4 event at Christ Church. This is open to everyone and is particularly suitable for those with young children as there will be plenty of activities for the whole family to join in with.
We are currently in a period of prayer. Thursday 18 May was Ascension Day and it marked the beginning of Thy Kingdom Come – a time when the Church prays for the growing of God’s Kingdom. Our Churches are open during the day for quiet prayer and contemplation . Each evening until the eve of Pentecost (27 May), there will be a short service of Compline (night prayer) beginning at 8.30pm in St Peter’s Church.
This culminates with Pentecost Sunday when the Church remembers the outpouring of the Holy Spirit on the early believers in Jerusalem. We will mark this with services of Holy Communion in both of our Churches: At St Peter’s Church we begin at 9.30am. I will be leading the service together with Alison White, one of our children and family workers. At Christ Church we begin at 11am. Our service here will be led by Steve Delaforce.
I do hope you will be able to join us for worship and celebration this weekend. With every blessing, Colin Resch.
Thursday 18th May is Ascension Day, when we remember the returning to heaven of our risen Lord Jesus. We will mark this at St Peter’s Church with a service of Holy Communion at 7pm. You are most welcome to join us for this service. If you are not sure, you are also welcome to come along and sit and watch with no obligation to join in. After the service, there will be refreshments served in the vestry.
Ascension Day also marks the beginning of Thy Kingdom Come when we give extra time in prayer – particularly praying for those we know who do not yet know Jesus. Our Churches will be open during the day and each evening, from Ascension Day (18 May) to the eve of Pentecost (27 May), there will be a short service of Compline (night prayer) beginning at 8.30pm in St Peter’s Church.
You can join us for Sunday worship on 21st May in Christ Church for a service of Sunday worship with communion at 11am. During this service, we will also give the opportunity for prayers for healing – either for yourself or someone else. Later, at 6pm, we will gather in St Peter’s Church for a service of Evening Prayer beginning at 6pm.
I hope you can join us. Love and blessings, 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.
