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

Christian Aid Week Appeal 10 - 16 May 2021

The Leicester Christian Aid Committee have joined many other cities in inviting people to make a donation to Christian Aid as a thanksgiving for the vaccines we have had, or will have free of charge. The online giving page is below.

This is part of the City’s Christian Aid Week appeal for 2021

Giving thanks for our vaccines in Leicester

Online Giving Page

Target £2,000.00
£120.00 raised so far
Share this campaign and help raise even more donations!


As more of our family, friends, and neighbours receive their vaccine, we are both joyful and relieved. But we are aware that many communities around the world are suffering and don't have access to vaccines. And many of them lack the basics they need to protect themselves like clean water for handwashing. As you or a family member is protected, please give to help protect those who don't have access to vaccines. This appeal is initiated by the Leicester Christian Aid Group. All donations will support Christian Aid's response to the coronavirus pandemic.

Keep on Praying!
