St Leonard’s Parish Church is a busy, welcoming church.
On a Sunday morning, we operate a transport to church group, ‘Sheila’s Wheels’ transport for wheelchair users, a flower rota and a tea/coffee rota. A Fair Trade stall also runs weekly. There is an active branch of the Guild and social groups include a thriving Bowling Club, and a Bump to Fives Group as well.
Our halls and coffee lounge are available to local community groups to use.
St Leonard’s has a choir who, with a gifted organist and choirmaster, sing introits and anthems (most frequently in four-part harmony) each Sunday for nine months of the year.
We have four formal communion services per year interspersed with occasional informal communion after Sunday worship using the common cup.
Our congregation is self-financing and in 2016 we contributed over £76,000 to the Church of Scotland Mission and Aid fund. We ran very successful Stewardship campaigns in 2006 and 2013 but are not complacent and are constantly looking for ways of improving the giving of our time, talents and money. We donate regularly to Christian Aid and recently donated £20,000 to the Leprosy Mission Hospital at Anandaban in Nepal.
