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

Coming Events

Week of Prayer for Christian Unity 2022

The Week of Prayer for Christian Unity is traditionally observed from the 18th to the 25th January – the octave of St. Peter and St. Paul. However, some areas observe it at Pentecost or some other time. The link above takes you to the page to download resources.


Sing Christmas 2021 is here

Our plan is for a live event broadcast from Leicester Cathedral

If for whatever reason that can't happen due to unforeseen Covid restrictions, we will still have a Sing Christmas broadcast for you live from the studio.

Sing Christmas this year will be on Monday 20th December 2021 between 7 and 8pm.

Register your venue here

Join hundreds, and even thousands, of others singing in Leicestershire and Rutland's largest carol service... from homes, pubs, community centres, churches, care homes, and the open air!

There will be plenty of interaction and shout outs on the night! “Sing Christmas” is traditionally BBC Radio Leicester’s busiest hour of social media interaction of the year.

For those that want to, we plan to sing the last carol, O Come All Ye Faithful, together on our doorsteps.
