The Parish of the Resurrection, Leicester

Home | About Us | Mission Statement | Leadership Team | Services | News & Events | Links


Welcome to our homepage. We are an Anglican parish ministering in an urban, ethnically diverse and multi-faith context on the northern side of the City of Leicester. The total population of the parish is about 35,000, and all of the electoral wards in the Parish fall within the lowest 10% in the country on recent indices of deprivation.

With the other local Churches, the Anglican congregations are trying to work out what it means to be a Christian presence in an area where most people belong to other faiths. There are several large Hindu Temples and community centres in the Parish. There are also smaller numbers of Sikhs and Muslims, with a Sikh Gurdwara and several Mosques in the area. Running the length of the Parish is the Belgrave Rd, known locally as the "Golden Mile" for the large number of jewellery shops, and the spectacular illuminated decorations put up during Diwali (a major Hindu festival).

It is an exciting place to live and work. Together we aim to support one another in proclaiming the good news of God's love and building community.
