Furthering Ecumenical Cooperation within Leicester and Leicestershire

We aim to seek and promote Christian Unity and to encourage and support ecumenical activity in Leicestershire.

The members of Churches Together in Leicestershire are the church leaders and their representatives from the mainstream denominations. We also work closely with an increasing number of independent churches who are now frequently members of local groups

The County Ecumenical Development Officer (CEDO) is Vic Allsop

Message from CTE Presidents

Let’s keep on praying, because prayer makes a difference.” That’s the call from Presidents of @ChurchesEngland in their new series of video messages:


#PrayersOfHope, #ChurchesTogether and #Unity

cte.org.uk/KeepPraying #PrayersOfHope #ChurchesTogether #Unity

Join hundreds of Christians praying #PrayersOfHope each Sunday at 7.00 pm. Print out a poster, put it in your window and keep the prayer going!

Christian Aid Week

- by Joe Johnson

10th-16th May

This year Christian Aid Week will be far from normal.  The house-to-house collections will not be happening and neither will the local sponsored walk.

However the following is organised online.

1.  A fun opportunity from the comfort of your own home, to follow the route of the usual sponsored walk and to answer quiz questions linked to places along the way. This virtual walk is attached, please have a go whether you would usually walk, sponsor or marshal, or just like quizzes or local history.

2.  Zoom video conferences which Martyn and I are holding to talk about our recent visit with Christian Aid to Zambia. Hopefully with the zoom format we can take questions and chat. (email us if you want to take part - provisionally we are doing them on the afternoon of Monday 11th and the morning of Tuesday 12th but can do other times)

There is a Just Giving page specifically for Loughborough donations, see www.justgiving.com/fundraising/Lough-C-Aid or we can bank cheques made out to Christian Aid.

Please get in touch if you want to sign-up for one of our Zoom sessions

This year, because of the worldwide impact of coronavirus, prayers and monetary gifts are even more important. Further information about the wider work of Christian Aid, and the ways they are responding to the coronavirus situation, can be found at
