Fourteen Churches from seven different denominations, covering the area in and around Leicester's inner ring road, have covenanted to work together in a spirit of mutual support and co-operation.
The City Centre Churches in Leicester seek to work ever more closely together in a whole range of activities, to experience the reality of that unity for which Jesus prayed.
Occasions of Prayer and Worship
Prayer is at the heart of our Christian life and, as well as our own daily cycles of prayer and praying with the congregation we are members of, we meet together for half an hour's prayer and worship each month in different churches, following a style chosen by the host church. Anyone is welcome to attend these times of prayer — members of the city centre churches and other people who find themselves in the city centre at lunchtime, looking for an opportunity for prayer. Our times of shared prayer provide us with an opportunity to pray for our city in all its rich diversity as well as an opportunity to meet one another after the worship for a chat over tea and coffee.
